Ride Photo

Starting from Pickett's Lock in north London, the ride winds through beautiful countryside to the finish at Midsummer Common in the heart of Cambridge, where you'll be met with music, refreshments, beer tent and massage.

"I took part in the London to Cambridge ride on Sunday, I've cycled a fair number of sportives and other cycle events and wanted to say how well organised it was. Event pack, maps, food stops, support etc - all excellent. The marshalling, with a smiling marshall on every turn was exceptional (having gone off course on other events ;-). I look forward to doing another event in the future." W. C.

'The London to Cambridge ride...a great event, pleasant, inclusive and very enjoyable...' Paul Humphries
