The Starfish Greathearts Foundation is inviting you to participate in the London to Brighton Cycle! Taking place on Sunday 7th September, the challenge will see you cover a 54 mile distance starting at Clapham Common heading through Mitcham, Carshalton, Chipstead, Banstead, Haywards Heath until riders are tasked with climbing the infamous Ditchling Beacon before the descent into Brighton!

No previous experience is required however preparation for this event is highly recommended, and with a bit of training completing this event should easily be within your capabilities. The spirit of the event is 'taking part' not 'winning' so you go as fast or as slow as you like! Given this event is limited to 5,000 riders; the route is less crowded than the British Heart Foundation event which attracts over 50,000 riders. The lower numbers arguably make for a safer ride. With the route clearly marked and pit stops along the way, you will be well looked after, ensuring that your journey to see the sea is most enjoyable. You can also look forward to your complimentary lunch to fill you up after your cycle ride.

As an ambassador to the Starfish family, your help through your fundraising efforts will bring life, hope and opportunity to children orphaned or made vulnerable by HIV/AIDS in South Africa. We identify the very best community-based organisations and partner with them to ensure the highest quality care. You can help us make a difference – one child at a time.
