RideLondon 2024

Cycle 100 miles on closed roads with Team War Child and fundraise for a safe future for every child living through war

Team War Child have secured places for this year's RideLondon! To secure your charity place and speak up for children affected by conflict, sign up today.

The RideLondon-Essex 100 is a unique opportunity to ride 100 miles on traffic-free roads through the heart of London and neighbouring Essex.  

Starting and finishing in the centre of the capital, with 60 miles of rolling roads through some of Essex’s most beautiful countryside and villages in between, RideLondon is the perfect challenge to take on whilst helping to ensure a safe future for children living through conflict.

The £495 minimum sponsorship target could provide 8 whole families caught up in conflict with all their basic needs for two months, including food and blankets, or cover the cost of 29 children being safely reunited with their family.
