MITIE London Revolution Sportive 2014

As I type this entry the  realisation of what I have done is slowly but surely sinking in.

I had almost forgotten that 2013 is nearly over and 2014 is fast on its heels.

2013 has been a LEGENDARY for me and Bumble B to say the least.

I continue OUR promise in doing as many cycling events as possible.

We heard about this MITIE ride originally from David P & I first thought it was too much, 185 miles over 2 days taking in the sights in and around London.

We won't be on our own though a few are doing either the whole thing or just 1 of the days.

In 2013 thousands of cyclists took up the challenge of the MITIE London Revolution making it the largest multi-day sportive in the UK. Riders of all shapes and sizes conquered the iconic 185-mile loop around the capital with hundreds staying with us for the sell out camp and party at halfway.
Tick off Olympic sites, iconic London landmarks and scenic back-roads in one fantastic weekend.

Sounds like fun eh?

As my friend Julie said on my facebook "Do both why do half the job when u can do it all lol xx u know me"

Also my cycling partner in crime told me to "FGS man up!"

I tend to listen to them, they have never steered me wrong


  1. This looks like a great ride. My wife and I plan to visit the UK some time next year. Does this event have limited space and how quick does it sell out if it does? My Brompton would love for me to ride this event.

    1. I think they still had places last time I talked to them but you may have to get in there quick. They where really excited when they found out I was going to do it on Bumble B.

      It's going to be a tough one for me cause I've never done over 70 miles in one go but this is 100miles and then another 85miles the next day. But I'm not the only one from the London Brompton Club doing it. Most are doing just 1 day but a couple of us are crazy enough to do both days.
