The Great Escape returns to London this May!

Back for its fifth year, The Great Escape returns to London Sunday 19 May. 

This fantastic 200km route run by Islington CC will take you from the heart of London, starting at Look Mum No Hands into the rolling countryside of Essex and back via quiet roads and picturesque villages. 

LCC is thrilled to announce that it will be the nominated charity for the ride, and registered riders can choose to ride The Great Escape and fundraise for LCC. There's no minimum amount that we ask riders to commit to, but every single penny raised will support LCC’s work improving cycling across the whole city, in every borough, for everyone.

The event has sold out for the past four years running so book your place early to avoid dissapointment!
