Bike vs Boat 2017

It's back and it's bigger than ever! This year a group of cyclists will compete against two boats. Who will win this unusual race from London to Brighton?

Leaving Tower Bridge (London) on Saturday, 15 July 2017, a group of cyclists and sailors on two boats will set off for Brighton in this unusual charity race.

Bike vs Boat is the ultimate London to Brighton race! Who will get to Brighton Marina first? The boats are fast, but rely on the mercies of wind, weather and currents. The cyclists will have to keep going throughout the night to get to Brighton first!


The Sail 4 Cancer team will cover between 120 and 180 miles by sea in a Sunsail F40 rocket ship! A development of the Beneteau First 40, the F40 is the ultimate performance racer having won 'Crossover Boat of the Year' as well as taking both first and second in the IRC division of the Rolex Sydney to Hobart race.
Join us! No sailing experience required!


The cyclists will be heading out with long-time Bike 4 Cancer supporter Richard Groome and will cycle via the longest possible coastal route which measures 324 kms (201.4 land miles).

The event is open to solo riders and teams of two or four who can ride together or a tag team.
