London to Brighton Ride 2018 is here…
The London to Brighton bike ride takes place this Sunday 17th June. There will be an estimated 15,000 riders taking part. The event is organized by the British Heart Foundation. There will be many great opportunities for sports photographers this weekend. Due to the volumes of riders they will not be going past at a great speed. Brighton itself is a great destination to get set up to get some good shots with great weather predicted.
The route passes through the London suburbs of Westminster, Brixton, Croydon and Purley, past Gatwick Airport, Crawley and then into the countryside, crossing the North and South Downs. Ditchling Beacon on the South Downs there is a steep climb followed by a gentle descent for five miles into Brighton, where the route finishes on the promenade by the Kings Road arches.
Get your camera out and get on the route for some great photos on this premier charity cycling event.
Good Luck to all riders and photographers this weekend.
