London to Brighton 2016

Fundraising image

Saddle up for the iconic London to Brighton cycle this September and raise money for FoodCycle!

Join over 4,000 cyclists, raising money for over 100 different charities, and take the epic London to Brighton this September. You don’t need any experience – just lots of enthusiasm and a passion to fight food waste and food poverty across the country.

FoodCycle volunteers, fundraisers and supporters are all invited to take part in the next event on 11th September. Leave the London streets behind and join us as we head through the Sussex countryside, over the South Downs and down into Brighton.

Avid cyclist and FoodCycle staff member Libby will be there on the day to support you, and is very happy to offer any tips and advice on how to get trained up in preparation for the event – so there’s no need to worry about where to go and who to chat to on the way.
