Walking

Often walking is the quickest option during big events in London. It's healthy, free and can often get you from A to B quicker. For maps and more information about walking in London, visit our walking section.

Footways along the routes will stay open, with crowd and safety barriers in place along certain sections. Marshalled crossing points will be available in these areas to help people cross the route safely.

Please take extra care if crossing any part of the route on foot.


Local residents

Any road used as part of the route for the Prudential RideLondon events will be closed for the event.

Once the riders in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 have passed over Hampton Court Bridge, rolling road closures will be used for the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic wherever possible in Surrey to reduce the impact on residents and businesses. Roads adjoining the closed route will have restricted access for local residents and businesses.

Detailed road closure information and local access information can be found in the Prudential RideLondon road closure leaflets, created by the event organisers, London and Surrey Cycle Partnership.


For London airports

If you're planning to drive to a London airport, check if your journey if your journey takes you across the race routes. Allow plenty of time to travel, use public transport to make your journey instead, or plan alternative routes to avoid the road closures.


Plan your deliveries

If you make or receive deliveries in London or Surrey, talk to your customers and suppliers ahead of time. You may want to consider changing the times of your deliveries to avoid road closures, or using alternative routes that avoid busy areas.
