Tower to Tower cycle ride

Blackpool Tower to Tower Bridge

The Challenge

We arrive and register beside Blackpool Tower early morning before setting off for London on this 262 mile journey.

The route will be marshalled and drinks, food, snacks and cycle support will be provided.

Your own friends and relations are encouraged to come and support and to collect you when you finish nearby Tower Bridge. Transport will be provided for you and your cycle back to Blackpool if you need it.

Day 1

After leaving Blackpool, the roads are quieter and we soon cycle through countryside and small villages with rest stops on route. Cycling through Wimslow, Stoke and Stone we progress towards London, stopping for the night in a hotel near Stoke.

Day 2

We leave our hotel and cycle again through Nuneaton and Rugby as we cross the country before stopping again for the night in a hotel near Milton Keynes. The route is hilly in places so a degree of fitness is required to cycle the full distance.

Day 3

Our final day as we cycle towards London now and passing through Milton Ketnes, Leighton Buzzard and towards Edgeware and Holloway as our target appears, Tower Bridge. We cross the bridge and celebrate our finish, tired but elated after our 3 day ride.

 

Terrain

A mixture of ‘A’ and ‘B’ roads but as far as is practically possible we will use the quieter and less congested roads.

 

A cycle helmet is compulsory on this event. We do not cary any cycle helmets so you must ensure you bring one with you.
