Denise Turner-Stewart, Surrey County Council’s Cabinet Member for Community Safety, Fire and Resilience, said: “It’s great news that so many of our grassroots clubs and organisation will enjoy long-lasting benefits thanks to Surrey’s involvement in the Prudential RideLondon cycling festival. The events continue to showcase Surrey’s stunning landscapes to the world and promote all the benefits of cycling, including to people’s health and wellbeing.”
