Following the success of the RideLondon-Surrey cycle races Surrey County Council’s Leader David Hodge said:
“From Big Ben to Box Hill, this was an extraordinary spectacle. It was wonderful to see cyclists both young and old conquering climbs and winding their way through Surrey’s beautiful countryside while being urged on by many thousands of people lining the road.
“Together the riders and spectators created a carnival atmosphere that ensured this celebration of cycling was a huge success. Now we’re looking forward to welcoming the event again next year to inspire even more people to get on their bikes and further cement Surrey’s reputation as a world class place to ride.”
