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.

Take Part

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.

Tracy Fox’s London Marathon 2019

Hi I’m Tracy. A humble amateur “runner”. I found running once my brother bought me an Xmas present to entry into Reading Half. This was due to me watching the London Marathon every year and telling him “Al, one day I will run a marathon” …..always inspired but never taking the leap into signing up…..

Well, I have to date run 70 odd marathons but always wanted to run London, applying every year (×7).

Adam and I volunteered at London last year with Sutton Runners. After ticking a few more boxes was able to qualify to get into SR ballot. I was aware when the draw was happening but NEVER thought I would ever get into London.

I was drawn out the hat and I have been training to try to get a bit faster. I would dearly love to run for Emma’s Bubble Trust as the story and the cause is something which is close to my heart. I have never until now asked for donations but this is a special one for a special charity.

Emma’s Bubble Trust is a fabulous charity which supports young people and their families who have been diagnosed with cancer.

Emma was a normal 16 year old from a local school, who suddenly after her 16th birthday was struck down with cancer.

As a school teacher this I feel is a truly worthy cause.

London to Brighton 2017

We had so much fun on our London to Brighton ride for 2017, with Adam W, Paul, Stevie, Sophie, Tom, Ryan, Louise, Jo, Lenny and Adam L, cycling the distance from The Royal Marsden Hospital to Brighton, on one of the hottest nicest rides we’ve had in a number of years.

This year was a little different as we decided to run the ride a week before we usually do, as we had the Wimbledon Fair the following weekend, but we were really glad that we did. As normal we took the route from The Royal Marsden Hospital in Sutton, down to Brighton. Many riders decided to cycle over to the start this year, so ended up covering a lot more distance than we have in previous years.

It really was a fantastic day, with riders raising lots of money and the supporters doing a fantastic job of raising over £300 en route too! Massive thanks go out to the stag and hen parties in Brighton who made it a real giggle, especially swapping shirts with Stevie!

We will be heading up over Box Hill for the first time this season and will then head back to the Bike Bean Cycle Cafe in Ashtead for some coffee, tea and cake.
