Looking for London/Essex Cyclists to be Support Riders at the ICAP L'Etape London by Le Tour de France on Sunday 25th September


Hello e20 Cycling Community! @E20_Cycle_Club

Next month sees the return of the ICAP L’Etape London by Le Tour de France on Sunday 25th September; an open road ride that takes in much of Stage Three of the 2014 Tour de France route and finishes in the Lee Valley VeloPark at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

Are you a confident cyclist who would like to help less experienced riders at this event, and earn a free Human Race event entry in return?

If so, please read on!

I am getting in touch with cycling clubs and communities local to the event to see if any of your experienced members and fellow riders would be interested in helping out the less confident riders on the day by being part of our Support Rider Team. This would involve leading groups of up to around 10 riders on the final 12km of the route from the Woodford area (exact location TBC) to the finish line, including the lap of honour on the road circuit at the Lee Valley VeloPark!

It is a great opportunity to utilise their local cycling knowledge and experience to improve rider confidence across the cycling community, which will hopefully encourage more nervous riders both on the day and beyond! In return for their contribution to this event, they will receive the following:
• Free entry to one of our Human Race events (see exclusions below)
• An ICAP L’Etape London by Le Tour de France t-shirt
• An event medal (they will be crossing the finish line with their group after all!)

This would take around 2 hours starting from the meet time (they will be cycling at the pace of the slowest rider in the group) with meet times between 1:00pm and 5:00pm, and they will need to come with their own bike and helmet (a high-vis vest will be provided).

Full event information can be found on our website http://humanrace.co.uk/event/letape-london/
For the free event entry, they can choose any event taking place after the ICAP L’Etape London from our portfolio at http://humanrace.co.uk/events/ however unfortunately the following events are excluded from this; L’Etape London by Le Tour de France, Woburn Abbey Triathlon, Windsor Triathlon, Dragon Tour, Dragon Ride, London Winter Run. Please note not all of the 2017 events / dates are live on the website yet and so you don’t need to confirm which event you would like an entry for on sign up, this can follow after the event.


Hi @SL_HumanRace

I would be keen to help out if you still need people, I am one of the ride leaders for e20cc know the route well and completed the event last year. I will also email you directly.
Kind regards


Hi Stuart,

It would be great to have you on board the event especially given you have experienced it all before! I have received your email and will get back to you tomorrow - we’ve been out today on site at the route.

Many thanks,
