We had still hoped to be able to run the London to Brighton bike ride this year, but in light of the restrictions for events with COVID-19, we have decided to cancel this years event.
However, we are hoping to run a Virtual London to Brighton ride. you can take place by joining our club on Strava (https://www.strava.com/clubs/22268/leaderboard). Sign up and take a ride over the course of a week of more than 46 miles and we’ll say thank you in some way on Social Media.
Ride for us solo or as part of a team. However you ride, you’ll be amongst friends on our Royal Marsden Hospital to Brighton Bike Ride.
The Royal Marsden Hospital to Brighton Bike Ride is Emma’s Bubble Trust’s flagship event covering 46 miles from the teenage cancer ward at the hospital to the buzz at Brighton beach.
The event is aimed at riders of all ages and abilities. Please note that we try to stick together as a riding group, so if you’re a more advanced rider, please let us know.
Sign up to this event that takes you from city to coast, passing through beautiful Sussex countryside. After arriving in Brighton, we’ll make our way to the Brighton Rocks pub to celebrate. Share the triumph of conquering the The Royal Marsden Hospital to Brighton Bike Ride with your friends, family and fellow riders.
Your efforts will help to fund our flat for teenage cancer patients and their families to stay while receiving treatment at the hospital.

The bike ride is a family event so we welcome riders aged 14 and above. If you are aged between 14 – 17 years old and would like to take part in the ride, you can only sign up by joining with a guardians consent.
We try to start at 9am, so please arrive early to setup your bike and warm up. There will be riders acting as guides, to support all riding abilities. We try to keep together as a group. Dependent on the volume of riders the event can sometimes take all day.
Set Up a JustGiving Page
The quickest and easiest way to do so is by setting up a JustGiving page. You can keep track of live donations and more importantly we’ll be able to claim GiftAid, which provides even more money to the help fund our flat. Share the page on all your social media channels and you’ll soon be smashing through your fundraising target.
