Capital to Coast
2,000 riders will be helping Capital to Coast celebrate its 15th year this Sunday on a scenic, fun cycle ride along open country roads. Raising money for Have A Heart.
All rides finish at King’s Lawns, Hove BN3 2PE (at the bottom of Grand Avenue) no later than 5.00pm. The ride is not a race and you will have time to take in the beautiful surroundings and receive a heroes welcome at Hove where your family and friends can meet you.
We don’t put a detailed route guide on the website as we need to ensure that on the day of the ride the route is accessible and clear.
From the Esher College start, the ride proceeds towards Long Ditton, through Chessington and past Boxhill, then along picturesque country lanes to Newdigate, Warninglid and on - and up - to the spectacular Devil''s Dyke. From there on, it''s sheer heaven, all downhill.
From the Hove start, the ride proceeds towards Shoreham, Steyning, Shipley, Southwater and joins up with the riders from the Esher start just south of Horsham.
The 30 mile ride goes from Handcross Park School near Three Bridges, through Pease Pottage and joins up with the main route.
Please note that the 60-mile ride does not go past the start of the 30-mile ride and if you are planning on meeting someone there, it is best to meet them at Warninglid School, the next official refreshment stop.Free Refreshments, Mechanical Support & Transport
The ride is clearly signposted and fully supported by volunteer marshals and mechanics and there are plenty of free roadside refreshment stops.
Ample parking facilities are available at Esher College and Handcross School. We also have coaches and lorries to transport you and your bike from North London to the start of the 60 mile start at Esher College and at the end of the ride from Hove back to the start of the 60 mile start at Esher College.
