Registration is now open for next year’s eighth edition of the Dulux London Revolution, which takes 2,000 entrants on a 300-kilometre loop around the capital and is the UK’s biggest two-day sportive.
Taking place on 11th and 12th May, the event includes an overnight stop at Windsor Racecourse with food, bars, live music and massages for those tired legs on offer, with family and friends welcome to join in the fun.
The route itself – which can also be tackled in a single day under the ULTRA package – takes in everything from famous London landmarks to country lanes on the outskirts of the capital, with some testing climbs thrown in.
The fully-supported event starts on the Saturday morning at Lee Valley Athletics Centre then passes Tower Bridge before heading through Crystal Palace towards the North Downs followed by the overnight stop in Windsor.
The Sunday takes in the Thames Valley and the Chilterns, with the return to Lee Valley undertaken via Epping Forest.
Packages include two days of cycling plus camping for £199, or £109 without the camping option, while the ULTRA is priced at £149. Single day packages for either the Saturday or the Sunday cost £59 or £39 if riding for charity, with full details of all the options available on the event website.
