Ballot results announced for 2018 Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100
6 Feb 2018, 9:30 a.m.
The wait is over. From tomorrow (Wednesday 7 February) the 80,000 applicants for the 2018 Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 will find out if they have been successful in the ballot and have a place in the sportive on Sunday 29 July.
Everyone who has won a place in the ballot will receive a confirmation letter and magazine through the post. Unsuccessful applicants will also receive a magazine, which will feature the charities that have places, so there is still a chance to be on the start line at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
Applicants who have not received their ballot result through the post are asked to wait until Monday 12 February before contacting the Prudential RideLondon helpdesk.
"The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 is a truly spectacular event on closed roads through the capital and into Surrey’s stunning countryside,” said Hugh Brasher, Event Director of Prudential RideLondon. "And I'd remind everyone who didn’t get a place through the ballot that there is still a chance to gain a place by fundraising for a charity. Charities with places available are listed on our website."
Riders in the 2017 Prudential RideLondon raised £12.75 million for charity to set a new European record for a cycling event, beating the previous record of £12 million. That brings the total raised for charity over the first five years of the world’s greatest festival of cycling to more than £53 million.
