Starting at 06:45
Starting ahead of the BM10k and the Brighton Marathon, the BM Ride offers riders of varying abilities the opportunity to enjoy the streets of Brighton & Hove, traffic-free over a 50k distance.
Start in Preston Park, take in the city sights before hitting the seafront and finishing by Hove Lawns.
Whether a keen cyclist, cycling with your family or looking for a new challenge, this event has something for everyone. Faster riders can start at the front whilst others follow on; this is not a race!
Take part with a general entry or choose from one of our brilliant charity partners and support their cause.

A Park and Ride service is available. You can still purchase a space, park your car in the Park & Ride car parks, but then ride your bike down to Preston Park ahead of your start time. You will then need to ride your bike back to the Park & Ride site.
Closed roads! No traffic.
Ride through the city centre, past the pier, British Airways i360, Pavilion and along the glorious seafront.
Largely flat but with a bit of a challenge to make things more interesting.
Fast riders can aim for a quick time and slower riders are welcome to enjoy the route at leisure.
What type of bikes can take part?
We are now permitting a limited number of E-bikes. However, they must comply with the current UK/EU legal requirements for ‘electrically assisted pedal cycles’ (EAPCs). EAPCs still require the rider to pedal and the electric motor, with a maximum power of 250 watts, cannot provide assistance when travelling at more than 25 km/h (15.5mph). You may be asked on the day to show the following information marked on your EAPC: manufacturer, maximum speed at which the motor can propel the vehicle in m.p.h. or km/h, maximum continuous rated power of the motor. If this information is not marked on your EAPC, then there should be a plate fitted on your EAPC showing the following: manufacturer, nominal voltage of the battery, maximum continuous rated output of the motor. If you wish to participate in the BM Ride on an e-bike, you must inform us by emailing prior to purchasing your entry. These details are required so you can be placed in a suitable start wave for safety reasons.
Do you provide bike hire?
If you don't have a suitable bike, you can team up with Cycle Brighton who have a wide range of bikes to hire to suit all levels of cyclist. If you're not sure what type of bike you want to use - road or hybrid- come along to their hire centre and discuss your requirements with their friendly staff.
Do I have to wear a bike helmet?
Yes, all participants must wear a helmet. You will be unable to access the start pens if you are not wearing one.
Is there a cut off time?
BM Ride participants will be expected to maintain an average speed of 18km / 11 miles per hour. Any rider who falls below this pace may experience course changes to shorten the BM Ride which ensures the course is clear for the BM10K runners following shortly behind. Alternatively, a sweep vehicle system is in place to collect any riders who do not wish to continue on an altered course or cannot continue due to injury, fatigue, mechanical failure, etc
