Welcome to the Prudential RideLondon Community Info page. You will find a host of resources here to help you plan for, and celebrate, the UK’s biggest and best festival of cycling. The next Prudential RideLondon takes place in central London on Saturday 3 August and in London and Surrey on Sunday 4 August 2019.
Maintaining access to local communities is very important. Many locations around the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 and Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic routes on Sunday 4 August 2019 will have specific access arrangements in place for event day.
Visit our Community Access page to download PDFs designed to assist you if you require specific local community access information on Sunday 4 August 2019. Community access information for the 2019 event will be available in due course.
Prudential RideLondon promises to be a fantastic day and there are plenty of places to watch the event.
A number of official venues located around the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey event routes, including pubs and cafes, will offer the perfect setting to cheer on charity fundraisers or watch the professional race! The official venues for 2019 will be listed below ahead of the event.
Free celebration packs are now available for community groups to apply for to support local festivals, street parties and activities taking place on the same day as Prudential RideLondon events.
The pack includes bunting, balloons and flags – everything you need for a cycle celebration!
Celebration packs are limited and allocated on a first come first served basis ahead of event weekend. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to apply for a pack.
Information for Businesses
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 event weekend – 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.
