VIDEO: Prudential RideLondon returns to Surrey today

Thousands of amateur and professional cyclists will take to the streets of Surrey today as part of the sixth annual Prudential RideLondon cycling festival.

Amateur riders will tackle one of three mass participation events – either a 100-mile sportive, a 46-mile ride or a new 19-mile event. Famous faces taking part in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 include TV presenters Louise Minchin, Naga Munchetty and Dermot Murnaghan.

Later in the day 150 elite cyclists will race in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic. The field includes Mark Cavendish, Andre Greipel, Michael Matthews, Elia Viviani and Sam Bennett.

The events will have an impact on roads and travel in Surrey – for details see the information hub on the organiser’s website which includes this leaflet. For live updates, follow @SurreyTravel on Twitter.

Spectators will be able to enjoy the action and cheer on participants along the routes, with “where to watch” suggestions here.

Grassroots groups across Surrey have been awarded more than £3million to improve sport and leisure facilities thanks to the county’s role in the cycling festival.

More than £53million has been raised for charity by riders in the first five years of the RideLondon events.
