Newcastle to London 24

 

Central London - 315 miles due south and just 24 hours! It's over the Tyne past the Angel of the North and on to the Yorkshire Hills. Through York down to the Humber - then historic Lincoln and the welcome flat lands of the East beyond.

The sun dips - night time arrives as we pass sleepy villages and speed through quiet countryside. Dawn breaks - the Capital's skyline is soon in sight - as the finish approaches the clock seems to stand still - 24 hours?

We've now teamed up with Macmillan Cancer Support - so your ride could also make a real difference and help others. You can achieve a lot in one day - join us on Ride 24.

THE RIDE...

The 315 mile route is split into 7 stages of approx 40/50 miles - with covered Rest Stops at the end of each leg to take on food & drink supplied by our specialist catering team - and to sort any repairs to bike & body!  

  • Non-stop - day & night. 24 hr 'target' time
  • 'Front Peleton' ~21 hour target pace
