Prudential RideLondon routes

100

The Surrey 100 kicks off from at 0545 in QE Olympic Park. Cyclists will then make their way through London on traffic-free closes roads before continuing down into the picturesque Surrey countryside.

As a route inspired by the London 2012 Olympic Road Race, this is sure to provide a tough challenge and there will be a number of climbs during the cycle. Nevertheless, this event is open to cyclists of all abilities.

46

The 46 mile race will track the same route as the 100 miler for the initial 27 miles. At this point, riders will veer off for two miles before rejoining for the last 17 miles back through London.

The 46 begins in waves at 0900, right after the final wave of the 100 mile event.

19

The 19 mile ride begins in Sandown Park, Surrey. It will follow the final 19 miles of the 100 route, taking riders up through SW London and for the grand finale finish on The Mall directly outside of Buckingham Palace.

This event is open to all riders above the age of 12 and is free for those between the ages of 12 - 15.

    Did the 100 mile in 2019

    I completed the course both in 2018 and 19. Weather better this year, and a big pb as a result. Fantastically organised all the way through. I dreaded signing in on the Saturday, but easy on both days, and minimal fuss. This is a ride you need to go hard, and keep going hard. If you expect to complete it at 14mph or less, you won't make the cut offs. Train hard, have fun. Learn to ride in groups before taking it on. Shame it's not quite 100 miles, hasn't been on either occasion for me. 5 hours and 4 mins last year, 4 hours 41 this year

    Did the 100 mile in 2019

    I participated in the 2018 and 2019 ride for BHF. This event is an amazing ride, however, during both rides I started at 0800 am and this had a significant impact on the flow of the rider course. Due to significant number of rider collisions due to volume of riders and non-compliance with rider etiquette and narrow stretches of road, this resulted in two diversions in 2018 and 1 x in 2019. Unless you start earlier there is limited opportunity to get round in the required time. Thankfully I got round this year but due to stoppages I was 1 x hour slower than last. The route is challenging but rewarding. Please RL either change the route to minimise collisions or reduce the number of riders Or host the professional ride on the Saturday or later on the Sunday to allow the amateur riders time to get around the course and then get a medal. Brilliant volunteers as always though. !!
  • Did the 100 mile in 2019

    I have applied unsuccessfully in the Ballot for the last 7 years. Im a 62 year old lady who has now raised nearly £14,000 for The Royal Marsden Cancer charity (where I am an outpatient) and also UNIQUE. I cannot keep asking for the same people to generously donate and feel that I have more than deserved a Ballot Place for next year? before Im too old or worse still, cancer returns. This years 100 miler event was great but marred by way too many converging groups causing massive congestion and accidents. Finishing on the Mall to no medal was also a huge disappointment. I do applaud the crews and all the supporters though. A great ride which Id love to do again but this time, for me. Keeping my fingers and toes crossed :-) Alison J Fairley, Oxon

    Did the 100 mile in 2019

    Sadly overall I didn’t enjoy it. Too much congestion. Must have had to stop at least six or seven times. Box Hill closed despite arriving more than an hour before cut off time. Just seemed to be either too many participants or very large clusters forming as a result of stoppages. Enjoyed 2015 ( my previous ride) but felt deflated this time.

    Did the 100 mile in 2019

    This has the potential to be an amazing event. Sadly, the organisers care more about the elite races than the tens of thousands of amateurs who largely fund the event. There are too many bottlenecks on the course and too many stoppages meaning that an event that should give a minimum of 8.5 hours to complete, in reality, only gives 6.5 hours to complete. Feed stations ran out of stock, they were missing a pallet of medals at the end and gave no extra time for cyclists held up by stoppages to finish the race.

    1) too many people / not enough spacing;
    2) 100 mile course appears to have been a few hundred yards short - lots of people have recorded it as 99.x miles / 159.y kms. Presume because end was moved?

    Too many riders / not enough gaps.
    For lots of people, the 100 miles recorded on Garmin/Strava at 99.x miles / 159.y kms...presume because finish was moved.

    Did the 100 mile in 2019

    Poorly organised, no Marshall’s to direct you to the start. Entrances to the pens not clearly marked. Official vehicles parked dangerously in narrow lanes, poor feed stations, too many riders, too many bottlenecks, too many crashes, and to top it off, ran out of finishers medals. Bitterly disappointed.
  • Did the 100 mile in 2019

    Too much congestion. An hour's walking time really held me up. Lack of food at feed stops. No toilet paper in the porta loos. Great support from the crowd.

    Too much stopping time. Unsure if it was congestion or accidents. Spent an hour walking, and missed the 100 miles. Barely any food at feed stop. Underwhelming finish line, walking up the Mall. The spectators were amazing.
