First 10,000 places in the 2023 RideLondon-Essex 100 will open on Wednesday 28 September
Entries for the 2023 RideLondon-Essex 100 on Sunday 28 May will open in a week’s time, on Wednesday 28 September.
For a second successive year, the iconic 100-mile challenge, the centrepiece of the world’s greatest cycling festival, will start and finish in central London and include a loop of Essex, offering people a unique chance to cycle on 100 miles of traffic-free roads.
The first 10,000 places in the RideLondon-Essex 100 will be available on a first-come, first-served basis to everyone, whether they live in or outside of the UK. Once these entries are sold out, the remaining places will be available via a ballot, which will close at 17:00 on Friday 28 October 2022. Entry is £99.
Alzheimer’s Society has been appointed the official Charity of the Year for the event, which this year saw more than 20,000 people take part and raised millions of pounds for charity.
The full route for the 2023 event is still being finalised and will be announced in due course.
RideLondon is the world’s greatest festival of cycling and was established by the Mayor of London in 2013 as an Olympic legacy event from the 2012 London Games.
The new partnership between RideLondon and Essex County Council was launched in 2022. The first year of the new-look event included a new three-day UCI Women’s WorldTour road race and four mass participation rides: RideLondon FreeCycle and the RideLondon-Essex 100, 60 and 30-mile events.
The full format of the 2023 event and routes across London and Essex will be announced over the coming months.
