The Challenge

RideLondon-Essex 100 is a unique opportunity to ride 100 miles on traffic-free roads through the heart of London and neighbouring Essex. It will start and finish in the centre of the capital.

Join our team today for the world's greatest festival of cycling. 

Route

The 2025 event will once again take place in Essex. 

The route sets off from Victoria Embankment in central London and heads into Essex via the historic Epping Forest. Once in Essex, cyclists pass some of the county’s most picturesque towns and villages, before joining a section of the 2014 Stage Three Tour de France route. Riders are taken through Felsted and around the county town of Chelmsford before heading through Writtle and back towards Ongar and central London. Riders complete the ride to rapturous applause at the stunning Tower Bridge.
