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, 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.
