Just hours before the world’s top cyclists race the RideLondon Classic, 27,000 cyclists will have the chance to cycle a modified version of the London 2012 Olympic Road Race route.
Prudential RideLondon 100 will start in the new Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, then follow the closed roads through the capital and onto Surrey’s stunning country roads and hills. With leg-testing climbs and a route recently made famous by the world’s best cyclists. It promises to be a truly spectacular event for all involved.
You must use a roadworthy and permitted bicycle in the sportive. For key information about permitted cycles, safety and other key information, click here.
The route of the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 offers a perfect, traffic-free ride for a range of cycling abilities. Everyone can enjoy a challenging day in the saddle pedalling through the roads of London and Surrey. As well as the personal challenge of completing the route, participants’ involvement will also benefit good causes – Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 aims to become the largest charity fundraising cycling event in the world.
