About the Challenge

Join the Stroke Association for their annual Thames Bridges Bike Ride. This memorable cycle challenge around London takes in world-famous landmarks and less well-known sights. Choose from 3 routes; Challenge - 55 miles, Classic - 35 miles - or the family friendly Mini - 8 miles.

From our hub on the Thames at Chiswick, you’ll be able to enjoy the quieter Sunday roads of the capital as you pass iconic sights including Big Ben, Palace of Westminster and the Tower of London. The Thames is never far away as we cross no fewer than 18 bridges on the 55 mile route before returning to the hub for a huge celebration.

With a well-marked route and full support, all you have to do is pedal and enjoy the views and the camaraderie of your fellow fundraisers.

We are currently confirming new dates and routes for this challenge and these will be updated as soon as available.  Please continue to check our website.

Detailed Information

  • Your trip will be led by experienced Discover Adventure leaders and support crew. Our leaders are selected for their knowledge and experience, friendliness and approachability, sense of humour and ability to safely and effectively deal with any situation that arises; they are also trained in first aid. You are in very safe hands with a Discover Adventure leader. The crew will have mobile phones and/or radios where appropriate, medical kit and other safety apparatus where necessary, as well as vehicle support.

  • Your safety, and that of the rest of the group, is our highest priority. Our trips are designed and planned with safety in mind. Your crew will be equipped with communication devices (eg phones, radios and/or emergency satellite phones), medical kit and other safety apparatus appropriate to the destination. Our leaders always have access to our 24-hour emergency UK back-up. They are responsible for safety on the trip, and will make any changes to the itinerary they deem necessary, should local conditions dictate. Pre-trip administration - such as medical questionnaires and travel insurance as appropriate - is all done with your safety in mind.

Preparing for the Challenge

  • We plan our trips around the optimal weather conditions, but could still be exposed to bad weather at any time. It is vital you are prepared for all conditions. We provide you with a detailed packing kit-list on registration, as well as details on useful discounts you are entitled to as a Discover Adventure customer. We are always available if you need advice.

  • This is designed to be a challenge, and it is vital that you train sufficiently for it. We will supply you with a thorough training guide once you have registered. Training is all part of the preparation: inadequate training will impact on your enjoyment of the trip, and your chances of completing it. We expect all participants to train hard in advance, but we respect everyone’s limits and do not expect everyone to maintain the same pace. If you have concerns about your fitness or if you have reduced mobility please do contact us for a confidential chat about whether this challenge is appropriate for you.
