RIDE LONDON-SURREY 100 & RIDE LONDON-SURREY 46,
JULY 28 /29, 2018
The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 takes place at the end of July. The 100 mile route follows much of the Olympic Cycling Road Race Gold Medal route, so it goes from London to Surrey and then back into central London, to finish on The Mall. It is the cycling world’s equivalent of the Virgin Money London Marathon and, with around 35,000 participants, is the world’s largest cycling charity event.
The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 46 also takes place at the end of July and will mostly follow the same route as the 100, but after the route reaches Hampton Court Bridge, it will then take a left turn before heading back into Central London on the 100 route and the same finish on the Mall.
The Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle offers a brilliant opportunity to get the whole family together to experience the fun and freedom of cycling on traffic-free roads in central London.
