About the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 19

Starting at Sandown Park in Surrey, the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 19 takes in the final 19 miles of the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 route, going through south west London, and into the heart of the capital to the spectacular finish on The Mall in front of Buckingham Palace.

The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 19 is the perfect opportunity for newer and younger cyclists to take part in their first mass-participation cycling event, and for families and friends to ride 19 traffic-free miles together. The event is open to riders aged 12 upwards (those under 16 must be accompanied by an adult).

Finishers will receive a special souvenir medal and free entry into the Festival Zone in Green Park.

Entry costs £29 for adults and is free for participants aged from 12-15.

Please note: participants aged from 12-15 must be accompanied by a responsible adult who is age 18 years or over. We recommend that any young riders new to cycling attend a cycling proficiency course such as Bikeability. Joining a British Cycling club can also be a great way of gaining additional confidence for riding in large groups and understanding how to effectively communicate on the bike.

Community Entries

Special community entries, priced at £10 per rider, are also available to selected community groups in London and Surrey. Please visit our entries page for more information on how to apply.
