We meet at the central island outside Columbia Hotel, Lancaster Gate (Google Maps | What3Words), from 07:00.

We’ll have racks to for bicycle, water for your bottle(s) and coffee to prepare along our cycling partners, European Cycling Tours who’ll be on hand to provide any last minute bike maintenance.

You’ll also be able to store a bag in the European Cycling Tours van, which will meet you at the end.

After we’ve got everybody checked in and registered we’ll ensure everybody knows who their cycle leader is, do a quick round of thank you’s so we can get you on your way!

The grand depart is at 08:00, when we head towards Marble Arch for the obligatory event photo!
