RideLondon-Essex 100

Register your interest

RideLondon returned in May 2022 with a new format, exciting new routes and a new partnership with Essex County Council. At the heart of this celebration of all things cycling was the RideLondon-Essex 100 – a unique opportunity to ride 100 miles on traffic-free roads through the heart of London and neighbouring Essex.

We are delighted to have secured places for the 100 mile event next year, taking place on Sunday 28th May 2023. 

If you're up for the challenge and inspired by the difference your fundraising can make to vulnerable children in Malawi, don't miss out on this exciting opportunity!

Why ride for Open Arms Malawi?

Every day 320 babies in Malawi become orphans. Many die before their first birthday from malnutrition or related diseases. Infant formula costs more per month than most grandparents or other family members earn. 

We feed and care for orphaned and abandoned babies until they can walk, talk and eat solid food, at which time we support their return home. 

Just £32 could feed one of the babies in our Infant Homes for a month, so just imagine what your fundraising efforts could do.

Be part of the world’s greatest festival of cycling - a truly unique, fun and inspirational event - whilst building brighter futures for some of Malawi's most vulnerable children.
