Join #TeamShine and take on the incredible RideLondon-Essex 100 sportive!

The Ford RideLondon-Essex 100 is the ultimate mass participation challenge bike ride, giving participants a unique opportunity to cycle on 100 miles of traffic-free roads. And you can join the thousands of cyclists taking part!

Created by the Mayor of London as a London 2012 Olympic legacy event in 2013, it’s a ride that’s ideal for those seeking a tough but achievable challenge. The spectacular event will see cyclists of all backgrounds and abilities cover 100 miles through the heart of London and neighbouring Essex.

Ford RideLondon Event Director, Hugh Brasher, said: “The Ford RideLondon-Essex 100 is the ultimate challenge ride. It’s a unique opportunity to cycle 100 miles on traffic-free roads that take in the contrasting beauty of the Essex countryside and the stunning urban landmarks of central London.”

Sign up to take part in this famous sportive! With roads closed to traffic, RideLondon-Essex 100 is the ideal event for you to complete a ‘century ride’!

The Ford RideLondon-Essex 100 is also part of the London Classics challenge, which includes the London Marathon and two-mile Swim Serpentine.
