Virtual London to Brighton Bike Ride

Date: Saturday 15th – Sunday 16th May 2021

Professor Robert WinstonCycle to reduce preventable baby loss. Join #TeamGenesis for our Virtual London to Brighton Bike Ride!

Genesis strives to provide everyone the opportunity of a healthy family. Our scientists and supporters have enabled us to make significant advances. We are delighted to invite you to tackle this iconic British cycling route from wherever you are in the world and help advance our important mission.

What’s involved?

The aim of this challenge is to cycle 55-miles in 48 hours, from 00:00:00 on Saturday 15th May, and to raise £100 for Genesis Research Trust.

As you clock your miles, your progress will be tracked on your own integrated dynamic map, created upon registration. Each milestone you reach will unlock information about the landmarks you are passing, as well as important research you are supporting with your fundraising.

The cycle can be completed wherever like, including on a Peloton bike or Turbo Trainer! Split the distance however you like over the two days.

You can sign up and complete the challenge as an individual, or create a team and race each other along the route for some healthy competition.

Registration is just £10. This includes your integrated dynamic map to track your progress, as well as your Genesis Research Trust cycle jersey or t-shirt*.

*Please be aware that if you do not register before Monday 10th May, we cannot guarantee you will receive a shirt before the event.

Once you are registered, you can sync your Strava account with your fundraising page, this way all your activities will be automatically logged, making it super easy for you to share your progress with your supporters. Don’t worry if you don’t have Strava, it is simple to set up and free to use. If Strava is not for you, you will be able to manually log your activities on your page.
