Following today’s RideLondon-Surrey events, Surrey County Council Cabinet Member for Community Services Helyn Clack said:
“I’m delighted that the wind and rain didn’t quash the determination of nearly 21,000 cyclists to turn out for this year’s RideLondon-Surrey event.
“Watching Olympic hero Sir Bradley Wiggins ride through Surrey’s stunning scenery and waves of avid amateurs tackle a route made even tougher by the weather was truly magnificent. I’m sure that all those who took part would join me in thanking the crowds who turned out to cheer them on.
“There can be no doubt it will have inspired many more people to get on their bikes so they too can enjoy the amazing atmosphere of the London Marathon on wheels and perhaps the next Sir Bradley or Lizzie Armitstead will be participating when we welcome the event to Surrey again next year.”
