What is The Cobblemonster?

Returning after a three-year absence, it’s London’s original and best Urbosportive! Or, in plainer terms, it’s a bike ride around a route marked out for you across some challenging terrain, right here in the capital, inspired by the iconic Paris-Roubaix.

We will start from Brixton Cycles Shop, SW9 6AG departing for cobbles and climbs aplenty before finishing at Herne Hill Velodrome, SE24 9HE for food, drinks, BIG SCREEN AMSTEL GOLD RACE and a raffle with BIG PRIZES.

We can’t wait to see you all again on Sunday 10 April 2022 at Brixton Cycles.

Start
Brixton Cycles Shop, 296-298 Brixton Road, London SW9 6AG from 8am
Finish
Herne Hill Velodrome, 104 Burbage Road, London, SE24 9HE

Route

More info on the route will appear here soon.

The route will depart from Brixton Cycles Shop and descend into the melee of the west end, blatting across some early secteurs of the Smokes’ Victorian pave before tucking into the east end and its myriad lanes of snaking cobbled nadgery.

We then cross the river to start a series of LBCs (Lung Bursting Climbs) which increase in frequency before the descent from Crystal Palace to the finish at Herne Hill Velodrome for a flying lap, in homage to Paris-Roubaix.

The route is designed for riders of all abilities, on all manner of bikes, and encompasses a number of London Overground-enabled bail out points for those that suffer with mechanical or physiological events. For some this will be the biggest bike ride they’ve ever taken on, for others it may seem like a gentle spin. We guarantee all riders will know they have ridden their bikes.

Entry is free but we recommend a donation to our official charity Evelina London Children’s Hospital. Our guideline donation is £15 and this has remained the same since the very first event in 2009.

If you’re taking part it will help a lot if you donate upfront, although you can give us cash on the day too.

The generosity of our punters has meant over £30,000 has been raised since 2009. In the words of the immortal Brixton Cycles Workers Cooperative, we salute you.
