RideLondon-Essex 100

Saddle up and join team Glaucoma UK for a brand new 100-mile ride!

About the event

RideLondon – the world’s greatest festival of cycling – returns on Sunday 29 May 2022, with a new format, exciting new routes and a new partnership with Essex County Council.

The RideLondon-Essex 100 challenge is a unique opportunity to ride 100 miles on traffic-free roads through the heart of London and neighbouring Essex. The event will start on Victoria Embankment and finish to rapturous applause at Tower Bridge, with 65 miles through some of Essex’s most beautiful countryside and villages in between. The full route will be announced in early 2022 – so watch this space for details!

Register your interest for one of our RideLondon charity places, or let us know you have your own place independently, and join the Glaucoma UK team raising vital funds to end preventable glaucoma sight loss.

Please note the deadline to apply or register your interest for one of our charity places is Friday 25 February 2022.

How we’ll support you

Whether you secure a charity place or your own place, you can be part of our team and we’ll be with you every step of the way. You will receive a Glaucoma UK cycling vest to wear as you train, a fundraising pack, support with setting up your fundraising page, expert advice along the way and the whole of Glaucoma UK willing you on to the finish line! 

I’m interested in a charity place

RideLondon is returning Sunday 29 May 2022 and we are delighted to have five charity places. 

By taking part in the challenge, you could be riding in the world’s greatest cycle festival while also helping us to give vital support to people living with glaucoma. Your support may even help prevent someone from losing their sight unnecessarily because of the disease. 

We are asking our charity place riders to raise a minimum of £500 sponsorship. Please complete an application using the form below and we’ll be in touch.
