Where are the best places to watch the event?
This year, the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic – Great Britain’s only UCI WorldTour men’s event and the richest one-day men’s race in the world – has a new route with a spectator friendly start in Bushy Park and the iconic climb of Box Hill as its centrepiece.
Head to Bushy Park at 14:00 on Sunday 4 August to see the world’s top professional men’s teams roll out of the picturesque setting of the park and head through Surrey to tackle the famous climb to Box Hill Village five times.
As well as the chance to see the riders up close in Bushy Park, there is a superb spectator viewing opportunity at the summit of Box Hill with live coverage and catering on offer at the National Trust cafe.
Box Hill will become a great spectator venue in 2019 as the riders in the pro race tackle the climb five times. There will be a big screen with live coverage and catering on offer at the National Trust cafe throughout the day, as well as have-a-go cycling activities for avid fans to enjoy.
