Entries Open for the Dulux London Revolution and ULTRA 2019

by Holly Blades

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 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."

Jason Smith, 48, took up cycling two years ago when his knees meant he could no longer run. It has provided him with so much more than he expected - two stone weight loss, new friends, a sense of challenge and "brilliant laughs". 
"I loved the Dulux London Revolution," he says. "It was really fantastic. The only down spot was the weather on the first day but day two was lovely. I met some great people on the way around and I thought it was fantastically well organised. The base camp atmosphere was great and there was a lot for visiting families. There's no question that I'll sign up next year."
The packages:
*   All inclusive weekender - (300km, 2 days riding, camping, massages, breakfast and dinner, festival pass)
*   ULTRA - (300km, 1 day, festival pass)
*   South London Leg - Saturday 160km (no camping)
*   North London Leg - Sunday 140km (no camping)
*   Charity - (range of charity packages through raising money for CRUK) 
Dulux London Revolution is fully supported. Cyclists receive training plans and there is a signposted route, regular pit stops, delicious food and drink, the legendary festival camp with camping and glamping options, chaperones and medical and mechanical support.
The route is breathtaking and varied. There are testing climbs and sweeping descents, iconic London landmarks, beautiful views across the Downs, leafy lanes and picturesque villages. Cyclists set off from the Lee Valley Athletics Centre on Saturday morning, ride out through the City to the North Downs onto the festival camp at Windsor Racecourse.
There, friends and family can join participants to kick back and relax with the Kids Zone, bouncy castles, face painting, chillout tents, live music, bars, food and drink and retail stalls with a fantastic range of exhibitors as well as live music. There is a glamping option for those who want a bit more comfort than a tent.
On Sunday morning riders set off through the Chiltern Hills and Epping Forrest to complete the loop at the Lee Valley Athletics Centre.
ULTRA riders, who cycle the full 300km, 360° loop in one day, start at Windsor Racecourse and join the rest of the pack to celebrate at the festival camp in the evening.
