A new 19-mile mass participation cycling event on traffic-free roads was launched today as part of Prudential RideLondon 2018, the cycling festival taking place in London and Surrey on 28-29 July.
It will start at Sandown Park, Esher, and take in the final 19 miles of the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 route, going through south west London, over Putney Bridge and into the centre of the capital to the spectacular finish on The Mall in front of Buckingham Palace.
The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 19 has been created to encourage younger and newer riders to take part in their first mass-participation cycling event and to provide an opportunity for families and friends to ride together. The event is open to riders aged 12 upwards.
Denise Turner-Stewart, Surrey County Council’s Cabinet Member for Community Services, said: “Starting at Surrey’s Sandown Park this event is a great opportunity for families and newer riders to experience cycling on traffic-free roads. It’s sure to build on the success of the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 and 46 events to broaden the appeal of the cycling festival still further.”
