Event Day

The 2019 BM Ride will take place on Sunday 14 April at 7:00am starting and finishing on Hove Lawns at the Velo Village.


BM Ride is for all types of cyclist. Take part on your road bike, mountain bike, folding bike … it’s up to you.

Taking part in the BM ride on Sunday 14th April but don’t have a reliable bike? Why not team up with Cycle Brighton who have a wide range of bikes to hire to suit all levels of cyclist. If you’re not sure what type of bike you want to use – road or hybrid- come along to their hire centre and discuss your requirements with their friendly staff.

There are restrictions on some types of bikes you can use. Please check our FAQS to find out which bikes are forbidden for health and safety reasons.
