RideLondon - Essex 100 with Sportive Breaks

Please note that only international riders can book our hotel and entry package. UK riders can book our hotel and support package for 1, 2 or 3 nights.

The RideLondon-Essex 100 is a unique opportunity to ride 100 miles on traffic-free roads through the heart of London and neighbouring Essex. It will start and finish in the centre of the capital, with 60 miles of rolling roads through some of Essex’s most beautiful countryside and villages in between.

The 2023 route still needs to be officially confirmed but we expect the RideLondon-Essex 100 to start and finishes in Central London with a start on Victoria Embankment and a finish at Tower Bridge.  Riders have the amazing opportunity to ride on traffic-free roads through both London and Essex with about 60 of the 100 miles taking place in the Essex countryside.

Sportive breaks offers guaranteed RideLondon entry together with a London hotel stay for 2 nights for international riders. For UK riders with their own entry we offer 1 or 2 nights hotel accommodation.

RideLondon - Essex 100

RideLondon was established by the Mayor of London in 2013 as an Olympic legacy event from the 2012 London Games. After seven editions, RideLondon has grown into the world’s greatest festival of cycling, featuring 100,000 riders of all ages and abilities enjoying a range of different mass participation rides, along with road races contested by the world’s best professional riders, all broadcast live on the BBC.

The iconic 100-mile distance is the longest challenge ride in the RideLondon programme. It has been part of RideLondon since it was first held in 2013, with the first seven editions starting and finishing in London with a loop of Surrey in between. As well as the 100-mile challenge for amateur riders, RideLondon features family-friendly cycle rides on traffic-free roads passing some of the capital’s most iconic landmarks.

In 2022 the RideLondon-Essex 100 provided a unique opportunity to ride 100 miles on traffic-free roads through the heart of London and neighbouring Essex. The event started and finished in the centre of the capital at Tower Bridge, with 60 miles of rolling roads through some of Essex’s most beautiful countryside and villages in between.

Also in 2022 Essex hosted stages one and two of a new three-day road race, part of the UCI Women’s WorldTour. The final stage finished in central London on the same day as the 100 mile amateur Sportive, the Ride London Essex 100.

Sportive Options

In 2022 a brand new route saw participants set off from Victoria Embankment in central London and ride into Essex via the historic Epping Forest. Once in Essex, riders glided past some of the county’s most picturesque towns and villages, including Ongar, Fyfield, the Rodings and Great Dunmow, before joining a section of the 2014 Stage Three Tour de France route. That part of the course guided riders through Felsted and around the county town of Chelmsford before heading through Writtle and back towards Ongar and central London. Once in central London, participants then completed their ride to rapturous applause at Tower Bridge – a stunning Finish Line for the 100-mile challenge.
