Information for Businesses
Guide for Businesses
On Saturday 29 July in central London and Sunday 30 July in London and Surrey, major cycling events will take place on closed roads, which will affect public transport and road journeys in the immediate area.
The Guide for Businesses available to download below will help you understand how your business could be affected and help you to plan ahead.
Prudential RideLondon Business Directory
If you are a business located on or close to any of the Prudential RideLondon routes, you are welcome to include a listing for your business in the Prudential RideLondon business directory.
The business directory aims to support local businesses by incentivising customers to visit your business before, after or even during the Prudential RideLondon festival weekend.
There is no charge to be listed in the business directory, where you are welcome to create exclusive offers for your current and potential customers.
If you are a venue located on the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 and Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic routes, you may wish to participate in our Celebration Scheme.
The scheme pairs a charity (who has participants riding for it in the event) with a venue – typically a pub, restaurant or cafe (others welcomed too!) – located on the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 route. This provides the charity with a base for the day and creates a hub where supporters and communities can gather to cheer on participants and watch the event.
If you are directly on the route and interested in joining the scheme please email email@example.com
The first Prudential RideLondon in 2013 event was a huge success, becoming the biggest inaugural mass-participation sports event in the world and raising more than £7 million for charity.
The second Prudential RideLondon also proved to be a great weekend of cycling in London and Surrey, despite a torrential downpour on the Sunday morning. To help you to plan your 2017 event weekend on Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 July – and to find out more about getting involved in this fantastic festival of cycling – we've put together a series of case studies (below) from businesses and community groups along the route. Check out how to maximise the business opportunities created by the event and effectively plan your weekend below.
If you would like your business to be featured as a case study from the 2015 event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Each year the organisers of Prudential RideLondon contribute the surplus funds – after the costs of putting on the event have been met – to The London Marathon Charitable Trust, which in turn awards grants to support cycling and recreational projects in the wider community.
If you are interested in applying for a grant, or would like more information, please visit The London Marathon Charitable Trust's website.
