180 miles around the capital, to be precise. London Revolution is a mass-participation cycle ride taking place on the weekend of 19-20 May. The route takes in such landmarks as Windsor Castle (salutes), Box Hill (wheezes), Queen Elizabeth's Hunting Lodge and Runnymede in a scenic tour of London's outer limits (full route). You'll also cover ground enjoyed by cyclists at all three London Olympics: Windsor Great Park (1908), Herne Hill velodrome (1948), Box Hill (2012).
The ride is spread over two days, making it manageable for newbie cyclists looking for a bit of a challenge. Those doing both days can also bunk up at the overnight camp, which promises a 'cracking night of music, bars, dinner and a few other secret cycling attractions we have up our sleeves'.
Booking is now open. Entrance costs £39 for a day, £78 for two days, and £169 for both days plus the overnight camp.
