In pictures: Today’s Prudential Ride London-Surrey 100 route launch

Boris Johnson and David Hodge

The press conference to announce the route of the Prudential Ride London-Surrey 100 has now wrapped up as excitement builds for the UK’s biggest festival of cycling.

Surrey County Council Leader David Hodge joined Mayor of London Boris Johnson and Olympic gold medal winner Laura Trott to unveil which roads 20,000 riders will take through the capital and Surrey this summer.

During the press conference, Mr Hodge described how London and Surrey will contrast perfectly with Surrey’s beautiful countryside.

Mr Hodge added: “Both Box Hill and Big Ben will show off the very best of Britain when Surrey’s picture perfect countryside contrasts with London’d famous cityscape during the 100-mile event. But entrants should put in some serious training as the hills in Surrey can prove tough if you’re not cycle fit.”

Laura Trott said she was looking forward to trying out Surrey’s hills on her bike.

She said: “There are a lot of hills on that course and it is a long way. I’m coming down for a weekend and I can do it then.”
