Prudential RideLondon: the world’s greatest festival of cycling
A true legacy of the 2012 Games
Developed by the Mayor of London and his agencies in 2013, Prudential RideLondon is the world’s greatest festival of cycling. The seventh edition will take place over the weekend of 3-4 August 2019.
While the Mayor and his agencies are the custodians of Prudential RideLondon, the event is managed by the London & Surrey Cycling Partnership (LSCP), a partnership between London Marathon Events Limited (owners and operators of the London Marathon since 1981) and SweetSpot Group Limited (operators of the Tour of Britain).
LSCP works with Transport for London (TfL) and London & Partners (the Mayor’s official promotional organisation) to coordinate the significant technical requirements for the event and work in partnership with London Boroughs, Surrey County Council , The Royal Parks , London Legacy Development Corporation and British Cycling , who are each integral to the delivery of the event.
Choice of 30, 78 or 102 miles
The Orro Sussex Downs Classic offers a pretty and scenic bike ride around the less travelled West Sussex countryside, dashing between the small country villages. Enjoy the route as it takes you through the winding lanes in the High Weald AONB.
Short route – After climbs and descents of the High Wealds, you’ll enjoy cycling through the quaint towns and villages of Copsale, Maplehurst, Partridge Green and Shermanbury. As you hit the back roads, look out for the various wildlife including huge Kites, deer and smaller creatures of the countryside.
Standard route – On top of the short route, you’ll have the climbs into the South Downs National Park around Ditching and Plumpton before hitting the High Wealds, to charge up and down the beautiful Ardingly Resivour. Views from here can let you see over the south coast towns to the coast and even more of the South Downs National Park.
Epic route – Enjoy all the standard route has to offer as well as an extra loop of fun descents and long, but rewarding climbs in the heart of the High Wealds. The views from this area are amazing as you cycling around the High Wealds and enjoy the beauty of Hindleap Warren Forest.
