Travelling by Tube and rail

Tube and rail will be the best way to get around central London on the day, but Stratford station and some stations around the routes are expected to be busier than usual. Plan your journey using our journey planner.

If you're taking part in RideLondon and are planning on taking your bike on public transport, please use National Rail's PlusBike service for free information about your combined cycle and mainline rail journey.

Planned works

Your journey may be affected by work over the Prudential RideLondon weekend. This includes:

  • Northern line: no service between Hampstead, High Barnet and Mill Hill East, and Charing Cross/Moorgate Replacement buses will operate
  • East London line of the London Overground
  • National Rail works

View TfL's closures on our status page for Friday 29, Saturday 30 or Sunday 31 July.
