There's a choice of 55 and 37 mile on-road routes or a shorter 29 miles which includes some towpaths. The short route offers a family option through Windsor Great Park, ancient hunting-ground of kings.

At the finish by the river you'll find entertainment, food stalls, beer tent, music and sports massage. Head for the circus big top!

‘Just wanted to say thanks for the organisation of the London to Windsor ride last Sunday. Really good route and great finish - we've done a number of your rides and much prefer them to others which are really competitive and more macho. Your rides attract a good mix of riders which means a relaxed atmosphere at start, finish and on the ride.’ P.H

"Thanks for a fantastic day's cycling from London to Windsor, great organisation - well marshalled, refreshments and mechanics and excellent signing on the route." S. H.

"We rode the London to Windsor, the first event for my firm's team. We dipped a toe in the water to see if we were up to it - we were so impressed with the organisation and friendly people we will be doing plenty more of your events again." C. A.
