Event update

A message from Hugh Brasher, Event Director, Prudential RideLondon:

"We are in an unprecedented situation as the world grapples with the global pandemic of COVID-19. Public health and the resources to support our medical services are everyone’s priority right now.

"We are still hoping to be able to stage Prudential RideLondon on 15-16 August 2020 and we will keep you updated should the situation change.

"In the meantime, please follow the Government advice - particularly on self-isolation and exercise - and take care."

About the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 46

The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 46 (remember, it’s not a race!) comprises a spectacular 46-mile route on traffic-free roads, beginning at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in east London and following the same route as the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 for the first 27 miles before taking a new two-mile route, which then links up with the last 17 miles through London to the finish in The Mall.

The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 46 was created specifically for newer cyclists and also younger cyclists, who might find a 100-mile challenge intimidating or, in the case of 16-18 year olds, they are not eligible to enter. The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 46 offers a great introduction to cycling on traffic-free roads and is a wonderful way to ride your first sportive.

The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 46 is still a challenge but it is much more of an introduction to cycling on traffic-free roads and it’s a wonderful way to ride your first sportive.

Riders will depart in waves from Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park from 09:00, immediately after the last start wave of the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100. They will finish on The Mall and will have a spectacular unique medal designed for the occasion.

The 2020 sportive will take place on Sunday 16 August.

Please note: All entrants who gain a place into the event must go to collect their rider number and timing device in the days leading up to the event from the Prudential RideLondon Cycling Show at ExceL London. Visit our Cycling Show page for more information.
