Prudential RideLondon – cycling for charity


It’s called Prudential RideLondon and is the largest cycling charity event not only in the United Kingdom but in the world.

Three days of racing on two wheels starting from Friday 29 July with more than 100,000 cyclists expected to take part in the event.

Inspired by the famous London Marathon, here amateur cyclists take part in a challenge that winds over a distance of 100 or 46 miles, depending on your choice.

The event is of such resonance that will be broadcasted live both on BBC and on major international televisions.


The first edition was held in 2013 and it is organized by the London & Surrey Cycling Partnership (LSCP), with the support of Transport for London and London & Partners (non-profit partnership founded by the Mayor of London).

There will be a new entry on Friday for this 2016 edition.

Prudential RideLondon Grand Prix will feature this programme: two handycycle races for injured veteran servicemen and women and another one for top international handycyclists.

There will also be a special race for kids, exclusively reserved for under14 and Under16 riders.

Free cycle for anyone on Saturday: many streets of central London will be closed so riders can safely cycle passing some of the capital’s most iconic landmarks.

Everyone is welcome to take part, no matter of your age or personal skills.

On Sunday 31 July, more than 26,000 amateur cyclists will ride through London and Surrey:  start point will be Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, through the beautiful Surrey countryside to finish on The Mall.

For newest or inexperienced cyclists there will be a shorter route of 46 miles that will rejoin the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 in the last 17 miles of the race through London.
