Capital gears up for cycling festival
The annual Prudential RideLondon festival of cycling this coming weekend (9 -10 August) will once again set out to “demonstrate that London is the UK's capital city for cycling".
Prudential RideLondon gives people the chance to cycle on traffic-free roads, watch celebrities including John Torode, Amy Williams, Martin Johnson and Matt Dawson ride the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 - and see elite riders battle it out in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic and Prudential RideLondon Grand Prix.
Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle (9 August) offers the chance to enjoy a 10-mile traffic-free route on closed roads through central London, passing some of the capital's iconic landmarks.
The event is open to cyclists of all ages and ability. Cyclists may cycle at any pace and ride the route as many times as they like, stopping en route to enjoy a range of entertainment and activities at five festival zones.
Ben Plowden, director of surface strategy and planning at TfL, said: “The return of a bigger, better festival of cycling will once again demonstrate that London is the UK's capital city for cycling.
“Prudential RideLondon will give Londoners the opportunity to get out on their bikes in traffic-free roads, and see tens of thousands of riders, including amateurs, celebrities and elites make the ride from Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park out into Surrey and finishing on The Mall.”
