Entries Open for the Dulux London Revolution and ULTRA 2019

Entries for next year's Dulux London Revolution on 11th-12th May 2019 open on 11th July. The first to sign up for the 2019 event, a 300km ride around the capital in one day or a weekend will be entitled to an early bird discount. Everyone is welcome, from elite cyclists to heroic fundraisers who have never been on a bike before. There will be a range of packages for riders to choose from. Prices start from £39. Please see https://www.london-revolution.com/ for more details. More than 2,000 cyclists rode 300km around the capital on Saturday and Sunday 12th and 13th May this year in Dulux London Revolution, the UK's greatest two day cycle ride, while 200 took on the route in just one day in the Oracle ULTRA. Nick Tuppen, CEO, Threshold Sports, which organises Dulux London Revolution and ULTRA, says: "This was another fantastic year for Dulux London Revolution, with record entries, despite the challenging weather on the Saturday. It was Oracle ULTRA's second year and it's undoubtedly an incredibly tough ride but for those who have trained, it's an exhilarating finish at Windsor Racecourse, knowing they have just ridden all the way around the capital in a day. Just as Ultra marathons are booming as people look to run beyond 26.2 miles, so the success of the 300km ULTRA shows that a lot of cyclists are now pushing themselves to ride well over 100 miles on a bike in a day."
