How can charities get involved in the 2022 event?
The RideLondon-Essex 100 was launched on Thursday 21 October 2021 with our charity webinar, which is available for you to re-watch here. From 22 October to 4 November 2021, we opened a ballot for charities to request places in the event...
How can charities get involved in the event from 2023 onwards?
For 2023, 2024 and 2025, charities will be guaranteed the same number of places that they filled in 2022. From 2023 to 2025, these places can be rolled forward, for one year only. If you have not been involved in the 2022 event, it will be possible to purchase places for 2023 onwards and we’ll let you know more about this in due course...
How much on average does a participant raise?
The average amount raised in 2018 and 2019 was £800+ per participant, which is an ROI of more than 4.5:1.
When will I receive my invoice for my places?
Invoices were sent out on Friday 12 November 2021, with our standard payment terms. If you haven't received your invoice, please get in touch with email@example.com and this can be resent to you.
How do we update our charity’s contact details?
Please contact our Customer Services Team with the relevant information and we’ll action this for you.
When will I receive our console to allocate our charity places?
You'll have received your console during the week commencing 24 January 2022. This was after the ballot for general entries closed on 20 January 2022, and before the announcement of the ballot results.
Marketing and advertising
Do you have assets we can use to support our recruitment?
Yes, we have social banners, artwork, imagery, a video, a press release and a fact sheet for you to use, all of which can be downloaded for free here. We’ll be adding to this over time, so keep an eye on your emails as we’ll let you know this way when more assets are available.
What advertising opportunities are available?
We had two advertising opportunities for 2022, which were available on a first-come, first-served basis. These opportunities were a listing on the general and ballot entry form, and a featured listing on our charity pages on our website. We’ll share the advertising opportunities for 2023 in due course.
Is it possible for visually impaired cyclists to take part?
Yes, it is possible for visually impaired cyclists to take part in the RideLondon-Essex 100. They'll require a pilot cyclist to join them on a tandem, who will be allocated a free-of-charge place...
Can our supporters take part on electric bikes?

Will there be cut off times along the route?

Will there be a meet and greet point post-event?
There is no designated meet and greet area at this year’s event. Instead, we recommend that charities meet their riders after they have exited the finish area, which will be around the Bermondsey Street junction with Tooley Street.

We have a participant who needs a guide – where can I find information to help with this?
