What type of rider is it for?

BM Ride is for all abilities. Whether you are a leisurely weekend rider, a regular commuter,  an experienced club rider or you would simply enjoy the opportunity to ride fast and train for your next event, BM Ride has something for all.

This is not a race, but a rare opportunity to experience safe, car-free riding, with fantastic organisation in an amazing city.

In 2019, the field saw an array of speeds, bikes and reasons to take part. While the first rider crossed the line with a fantastic sprint in a super-fast time, many took part with friends or family, as part of a fundraising or fitness challenge and completed the 50km in various times.

Rider Support

If you’re not au fait with road riding in groups or mechanically minded, don’t worry, pre-event advice and training support will be available to all.

We’ll send you helpful info about riding in groups, hand signals and basic bike maintenance in the lead-up to the event.

If you’re new to riding this kind of distance, you can also make use of training advice on our Training Blog – and we’ll also send you new articles over the coming months.

On Event Day, there will be mechanical support at the event should you need it, and marshalls will be in place on the route to give you peace of mind.
