August 10, 2014. First wave starts at 6:00am.
The RideLondon-Surrey 100 will finish in iconic central London, shortly before the pro riders race in the Classic event on a similar route.
25,000 amateur cyclists are expected to take part in the 2nd annual RideLondon100.
There will be a business challenge within the RideLondon 100 where up to 1,000 teams of four riders will cycle around 25 miles each, changing over their timing device at three pre-ordained places on the route.
The RideLondon-Surrey 100 will start in wave starts between 06:00 and 08:00 on Sunday 10 August 2014. Participants will be seeded, with their starting position indicative of ability and fitness, to deliver a safe and enjoyable event for all. All participants will need to be able to finish the 100 miles within around 9 hours in order to finish safely in advance of the RideLondon Classic finish and ride safely within a large group. Cut-off times along the course are specific and riders will be re-routed to shorter distances if the cutoff time is missed.
Those not riding in RideLondon-Surrey 100 can still get involved by supporting participants along the route and through a range of additional activities being presented as part of this weekend festival of cycling. On August 9th, the City of London closes its streets to offer a "Free Cycle" event. This cycle ride is an opportunity for RideLondon-Surrey riders and non-riders to enjoy a bike ride through central London. In 2013, over 50,000 friends, family, and travelers enjoy this activity (bikes not provided).
Getting to the Start:
Riders can make their way to the start by biking about 8 miles from the hotel. The streets are quiet during the morning hours and several cyclists will be en route in this format. Cabs are hard to procure at this time and the tube does not permit bikes.
