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 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."

Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle offers a brilliant opportunity to get the whole family together to experience the fun and freedom of cycling on traffic-free roads in central London.

Registration for Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle is now open – it's free to sign up, so come along and enjoy your day at the world's greatest festival of cycling!


The seven-mile FreeCycle circuit passes iconic London landmarks including Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, St Paul’s Cathedral and the Bank of England, with stunning views of London to be found everywhere you look.

Festival Zones

Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle features six Festival Zones in iconic London locations including St Paul's Churchyard and Green Park.

A wide range of bike-based entertainment and activities will take place at each site during the day.


Led Rides

We want as many people as possible to enjoy Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle so we’ve put together a series of Led Rides with the London Cycling Campaign to deliver you to the heart of the action in central London.

Each ride will be led by experienced cyclists who will ride at a relaxed pace that’s perfect for beginners. There are Led Rides from every London borough to the Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle route before the event, and back to each borough after the event.


Event photos

Sportograf’s photographers were out around the route at the 2019 Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle to capture your day! As long as you downloaded and attached a rider number to your handlebars, you'll be able to view and purchase your FreeCycle photos.


Photos are available from just £4.99.
