If you’re successful in the ballot you’ll need to pay the UK entry fee of £89 – we’ll let you know your result by the end of February 2022.

We guarantee to offer you a full refund if the event is cancelled for any reason. Please note however that if you’re unable to take part, you won’t be able to defer your 2022 RideLondon-Essex 100 entry to a future year and your entry fee is non-refundable.

What to expect from RideLondon-Essex 100

The 100-mile challenge will start on Victoria Embankment in central London, with riders heading out east into neighbouring Essex for 65 miles through beautiful countryside, rolling terrain and picturesque villages, before returning to the capital for a heroes’ welcome at the spectacular Tower Bridge! Full details of the route will be released in the new year, so stay tuned for more.
