The Park welcomes eager cyclists and spectators to enjoy the sporting spectacle that takes over London for an energetic summers weekend. While several events take place across central London, combining the fun and accessible element of a free family ride with the excitement of watching the world’s best professional cyclist’s race, two of the main events start from the Park.
Taking a cue from the London Marathon, amateur cyclists will participate by riding a 100-mile, 46-mile or 19-mile challenge on the same closed roads as the professional men, with the added incentive of raising money for good!
Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100
Celebrating the legacy for cycling created by the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 starts in the Park, then follows a 100-mile route on closed roads through the capital and into Surrey’s stunning countryside. With leg-testing climbs and a route made famous by the world’s best cyclists at the London 2012 Games, it's a truly spectacular event for all involved. The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 finishes on The Mall in central London, shortly before 150 professional cyclists race in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic on a similar route.
Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 46
The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 46 event comprises a spectacular 46-mile route on traffic-free roads, beginning at the Park and following the same route as the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 for the first 27 miles before taking a new two-mile route, which then links up with the last 17 miles through London to the finish in The Mall. This event was created specifically for newer cyclists and also younger cyclists, who might find a 100-mile challenge intimidating or, in the case of 16-18 year olds, they are not eligible to enter. The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 46 is still a challenge but it is much more of an introduction to cycling on traffic-free roads and it’s a wonderful way to ride your first sportive.
This festival of cycling was developed by the Mayor of London, London & Partners and Transport for London in partnership with Surrey County Council. The event is managed by the London & Surrey Cycling Partnership (LSCP) and sponsored by Prudential.
