Staged for the first time in August 2013, this is the largest festival of cycling in the world with more than 100,000 participants expected to cycle more than three million miles during the weekend of 28-30 July 2017. Building on a successful introduction to the Prudential RideLondon schedule in 2017, the festival will open on Friday 28 July with events for handcyclists, youths and BMX riders at the Lee Valley VeloPark in the Park.

These are the Prudential RideLondon 2017 events which will take place at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park: 

Prudential RideLondon Grand Prix, Friday 28 July 2017

Prudential RideLondon Grand Prix will take place on the road circuit and BMX track at LeeValley VeloPark.

The Prudential RideLondon Youths Grand Prix: a programme of four races with a boys and girls race for the Youth B category (open to riders aged U14) and a boys and girls race for the Youth A category (open to riders aged U16)
The Prudential RideLondon Youths BMX Grand Prix for boys and girls in four age categories (for riders aged U8, 9-10 years, 11-12 years and 13-14 years)

Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 and 46, Sunday 30 July 2017

The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 will start in the Park before heading through the capital and out into the Surrey countryside and returning to the finish on The Mall. There will be road closures, bus diversions and parking restrictions for both events.

Approximately 25,000 amateur cyclists will take on a cycling challenge like no other through London and Surrey on a similar route to that of the London 2012 Olympic road races. The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 starts in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, goes out through London to Surrey’s stunning country roads and hills before returning to the capital to finish in spectacular style on The Mall in front of Buckingham Palace.

Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 46 takes also starts in the Park immediately after the last start wave of the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100, and finishing on The Mall in front of Buckingham Palace. It will send riders along Hampton Court Way. Local access to and from Thames Ditton via Embercourt Road will be maintained all day on Sunday 30 July.

The ‘46’ proved a popular new addition to Prudential RideLondon last year and is set to build on that success in 2017. It was created specifically for newer and younger cyclists to encourage them to enter their first mass-participation cycling event and enjoy the freedom and camaraderie of Prudential RideLondon.
