A boutique Brighton hotel is offering one lucky entrant who signs up for the LA fitness Capital to Coast Cycle Challenge for Charity a luxury city break.

The London Eye to Brighton Bike Ride raises money for leading UK charities, Norwood, which supports adults and children with learning disabilities and vulnerable families, and The Down’s Syndrome Association, which helps people with Down’s Syndrome lead full and rewarding lives. This year’s Capital to Coast Cycle Challenge for Charity takes place on 28 June and, to mark the 20th anniversary of the ride, registration will cost just £20.

Starting at the world-famous Coca-Cola London Eye, riders can choose between a 60-mile, 80-mile or 100-mile route through the glorious English countryside, finishing on the Brighton seafront. There are also circular routes of 40-miles and 60-miles starting and finishing in Brighton.

New entrants who register for the ride between now and May 31 will be entered into a draw to win a stay for two at Brighton’s Hotel Pelirocco, ‘the UK’s most rock and roll’ hotel, the evening after the ride on Sunday June 28. The winners will stay in a luxurious suite designed by Brighton designers Ridley and Dowse, decorated with specially commissioned etched vintage mirrors as well as the duo’s trademark prints.

Ian Tate, Business Development Manager for Challenges at Norwood, said: "With little over a month to go before one of the most well-loved events on the cycling calendar – we are urging people to register as early as possible. We’ve laid on even more routes and are gearing up for another fantastic day of cycling."

Hotel Pelirocco Manager Amy Bartholomew said "The Capital to Coast cycle challenge raises money for two amazing charities, so we're proud to offer up one of our most sought-after luxury rooms to a lucky cyclist."

Register for the ride at capitaltocoast.org.uk and you will automatically be entered into the draw to win the luxury stay for two at Hotel Pelirocco.

To be eligible to win, entrants must register before midnight on Sunday May 31. A winner will be picked at random and announced on Monday June 1. Entrants must be able to stay on the night of Sunday June 28.
