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.

Can our supporters take part on electric bikes?
Yes, electric bikes are permitted when operated to a maximum output of 25kmph/250W, and where such assistance is only provided when the participant is pedalling.
Will there be cut off times along the route?
We’ll be announcing details of the cut off times for the RideLondon-Essex 100 closer to the event. In the meantime, as a guide, cut off times are usually based on a rider maintaining a regular pace to complete the course within eight hours...
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.
