London Edinburgh London is Audax UK’s biggest and most prestigious cycling event and takes place every four years. The last event was held in the summer of 2017 and saw 1,500 riders from over 57 countries across the world cycle approximately 1,400 kilometres from London to Edinburgh and back again in under five days.
Riding through some of the most beautiful scenery in Britain, those amazing cyclists relied on self-sufficiency, camaraderie and the hospitality of hundreds of people to complete the epic challenge. You can view the full route of the event below:
Although the route changes with each edition, it takes riders on mostly quiet roads and lanes – ranging from the flatter terrain in Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire to the hillier terrain further north, first in the Pennines and then in Scotland’s Southern Uplands. The next event will be held in 2021 and our team are hoping to take part then.
