The Newcastle to London Bike Ride 2017

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?



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 a 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

  • Saturday start - 9.00am, 10.30am & midday 

  • Fully supported - all the way

  • Signed with pink arrows & glow sticks 

  • Optional bike transport to Newcastle for Start

  • Optional coach transfer back to Newcastle 

  • Some will do it in ~26/27 hours - that's fine!

  • A great finish & welcome in Central London
