Get Inspired - Prudential RideLondon 2014
31 Jul 2013, 4:01 p.m.
Next year’s Prudential RideLondon festival of cycling will take place on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 August 2014.
The exact routes and timings for the 2014 events will be confirmed later this year after the post-event evaluation of the Year One event, which takes place this weekend (3 and 4 August).
The online ballot for places in next year’s Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 will open on Monday 12 August 2013. It will close on 6 January 2014 or when 80,000 registrations have been received – whichever is earlier.
The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, said: "We’re expecting 70,000 cyclists to take part in the first ever Prudential RideLondon this weekend, with many thousands more watching on the streets and millions on their televisions. I am delighted we’ve now been able to confirm the dates for year two, and certain that it is set to become a much-loved event every summer in the capital."
Surrey County Council Leader, David Hodge, said: "This year’s event through Surrey promises to be a truly spectacular celebration of pedal power and I'm sure it will inspire many more people to set the wheels in motion to be on the start line next August for cycling's version of the London Marathon."
