Celebrating the legacy for cycling created by the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 will start in the new Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, then follow a 100-mile route on closed roads through the capital and into Surrey’s stunning countryside. With leg-testing climbs and a route recently made famous by the world’s best cyclists, it will be a truly spectacular event for all involved.
The route of the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 is perfect for both club and recreational cyclists. Slower cyclists can enjoy a challenging ride while faster riders will relish the opportunity to pit themselves against the country’s top amateurs. As well as the personal challenge of completing the route, participants’ involvement will also benefit good causes – the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 aims to be the largest charity fundraising cycle event in the world.
Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 will finish on The Mall in central London, shortly before the professional cyclists race in the inaugural Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic on a similar route.
The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 will begin in wave starts between 06:00 and 08:00 on Sunday 4 August 2013. Participants will be seeded, with their starting position indicative of ability and fitness, to deliver a safe and enjoyable event for all. All participants will need to be able to finish the 100 miles within nine hours in order to finish safely in advance of the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic finish and ride safely within a large group.
Those not riding in Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 can still get involved by supporting participants along the route and through a range of additional activities being presented as part of this weekend festival of cycling.
