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 become the largest charity fundraising cycling event in the world.
Starting from Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in east London, cyclists head past Canary Wharf and through the City of London before cycling west along PIccadilly and the A4. Riders cross the River Thames at Chiswick and pass through Richmond Park and the heart of Kingston-upon-Thames, before crossing Hampton Court Bridge along the route made famous by both the road race and time-trial events during the London 2012 Olympic Games.
There's plenty of stunning Surrey countryside on offer as cyclists head south past Newlands Corner, Abinger Hammer and Holmbury St Mary before tackling the biggest ascent on the route at Leith Hill. After a short descent, it's onto the next challenge: the world-famous zigzags of Box Hill.
After heading north through Leatherhead, Cobham, Esher and Kingston, the route takes riders back into London over Putney Bridge to cross the River Thames for a final time. The route then follows the Embankment all the way alongside the Thames, heading past some of London’s most famous landmarks as it makes its way across Parliament Square and up Whitehall.
The route then swings left through Trafalgar Square, with riders streaming under Admiralty Arch before a spectacular finish on The Mall.
