Some 300 cyclists set off from Windsor Racecourse on Saturday to ride 300km around London.

Their ride was to take them as far as the City of London and Epping before returning to the racecourse at the end of the day, where they met up with more than 250 cyclists who were taking two days to do the same trip from the other direction.

They had cycled from Lee Valley Athletics Centre in London that morning and would head back the following day, completing the same route from the other direction after camping out at the racecourse overnight.

It was all part of the Dulux Trade London Revolution cycling event.

The event is fully supported. Cyclists receive training plans and there was a sign-posted route, regular pit stops, food and drink, chaperones and medical and mechanical support.

Participants' route took them through the City, past the Shard, over Tower Bridge to HMS Belfast - though Dulwich, Crystal Palace and the North Downs.

At the Windsor Racecourse festival camp the cyclists were able to have a much needed rest and relax. Friends and family joined riders to kick back and relax with the Kids Zone, bouncy castles, face painting, chillout tents, live music, bars and lots of stalls with a wide range of exhibitors as well as live music.
