Welcome and thank you for your interest in volunteering for the world’s greatest festival of cycling. You’ll find everything you need to know here.

The event

Developed by the Mayor of London and his agencies, Prudential RideLondon 2015 will see 95,000+ riders participating in five events over the weekend of Saturday 1 August and Sunday 2 August 2015. The events are:

  • Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle, Saturday 1 August 2015
  • Prudential RideLondon Grand Prix, Saturday 1 August 2015
  • Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100, Sunday 2 August 2015
  • Prudential RideLondon Handcycle Classic, Sunday 2 August 2015
  • Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic, Sunday 2 August 2015

How do I get involved?

Thousands of riders and spectators will be involved in the Prudential RideLondon events. Volunteers are needed to give directions, maintain rider and spectator safety and generally ensure that the events run smoothly.

You could be a keen cyclist, you might have experience of volunteering or maybe you’re simply inspired by this unique event. Whatever your motivation, it’s important you are aware of the crucial role you’ll be playing and the nature of the challenge you’ll be taking on.

Whatever role you sign up for, you’ll need to be fully committed. We will do our very best to accommodate your needs but it’s important you’re flexible too – some roles will start early or finish late, for example – and you understand that every role is crucial to the success of the event.

There may be some challenges along the way but we will never ask you to do something you are not comfortable with. Supervisors will be on hand to manage your welfare during the day and listen to any concerns you may have.

Roles will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, so if you have a role or an area in mind make sure you apply as soon as possible. Whichever role you choose to undertake will be crucial to the success of the event and we look forward to having you on the team. Please remember to make a note of your training date and we look forward to seeing you in July.

Win a bike!

As a thank you to all of the wonderful volunteers, the organisers of Prudential RideLondon will be holding a prize draw with a top prize of a brand-new bike from Wiggle!

To be in with a chance of winning this great prize, all you need to do is register as a volunteer, choose your shift and attend your shift on either Saturday 1 or Sunday 2 August 2015. There will be lots of spot prizes too. Terms & conditions apply.
