The fantastic London to Cambridge ride is a very popular event with cyclists of all abilities. The route covers around 60 miles starting in Pickett’s Lock in north London and ending at Midsummer Common in the heart of Cambridge. The ride winds through Essex, Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire, with lots of refreshment stops along the route and live music, food, beer tent and massage at the end.

Entry fees go towards the safe running of the event; Amnesty International UK needs participants to raise sponsorship to help defend human rights and protect vulnerable people around the world.
