Developed to celebrate London 2012’s legacy, the two-day festival runs from Saturday-Sunday, August 1-2.
The race starts at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, east London, enters Canary Wharf, crosses the Thames, Richmond Park and Hampton Court Bridge, along London 2012’s famous road and time trial routes.
The third-annual race enters Surrey’s stunning countryside and climbs world-famous Box Hill zig zags, before returning to finish on The Mall.
The charity proudly provides a complete day, including fundraising and training support, free cycling top, and post-race reception with free shower, refreshments and relaxing massage.
First Great Western (FGW) offers Meningitis Now riders free tickets for their trains to and from London, complete with cycle storage space, so people can make a weekend of it.
Meningitis Now senior events fundraiser Caroline McDonnell said: “This is your last chance to sign up for the wonderful spectacle. We’re delighted to offer registration at £25 – 50 per cent off – and only ask for £450 minimum pledge. This gives participants more time to focus on the epic event and London’s iconic landmarks.”
The ride is perfect for individuals or teams, with every penny raised helping Meningitis Now fund pioneering preventative research, lifesaving awareness and support.
Participants must be 18 years or over on race day and need to provide a bike.
Registration with Meningitis Now and race organisers must be completed by May 6.
