Prudential RideLondon-Surrey returns this summer

Surrey will host an exciting cycling event again this summer (Sunday 10 August).


Prudential RideLondon is the annual world-class festival of cycling developed by the Mayor of London, London & Partners and Transport for London in partnership with Surrey County Council and managed by the London & Surrey Cycling Partnership. It will include:

Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100

Sunday 10 August is the second day of the overall festival and will see 20,000 amateur cyclists tackle a 100-mile route on closed roads through London and Surrey. The event will pass through or near Ripley, West Horsley, Newlands Corner and Gomshall in our borough.

Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic

Later on Sunday 10 August, 150 professional cyclists will race on an extended 140-mile route. The race will again pass through or near Ripley, West Horsley, Newlands Corner and Gomshall.

Road closures, public transport changes and parking restrictions

The roads on the route will close from the early hours of the morning on Sunday 10 August. There will be an impact on local traffic in large parts of Surrey and London all day, with road closures, bus diversions and parking restrictions in affected areas. You will not be able to drive across the course of the route.

Any road used as part of the route will close. Roads adjoining the closed route will have restricted access for local residents and businesses. Any vehicle left on the route or parked in a suspended parking bay will be removed. Access for emergency vehicles will be unaffected.

The process to reopen the roads in Surrey will start in the late afternoon and continue through the early evening as the event progresses through the county.
