Cycling fever will grip London this summer when more than 20,000 cyclists hit the start line for the London-Surrey 100-mile sportive in August. The mass participation event is part of Prudential RideLondon, which BikeRadar's parent company Future has been confirmed as Official Cycling Media Partner for.
We’ve teamed up the organisers to offer ten lucky readers the chance to join the action-packed party and win a place on the oversubscribed 100 mile ride. To win one of the places, enter the competition here - entries close today so hurry!
The sportive – set to be the biggest mass participation cycling event the UK has ever seen – is just one of a number of Prudential RideLondon events to be held over 3-4 August that will confirm the city as a global capital of cycling.
And with less than 80 days to go, BikeRadar Active is offering a bespoke training plan to help riders train for and maximise their performance on the tough route out into the Surrey Hills before its swings back to the start/finish point at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
Other events include the family friendly Freecycle, an eight mile car-free loop that will give up to 50,000 cyclists of all abilities the chance to savour the sights of many the city’s historic landmarks from the saddle.
To help new cyclists get into the sport for the first time and make the most of the activity BikeRadar’s sister magazine, On Your Bike will be distributed to everyone who pre-registers for the Prudential Freecycle.
As well as taking part, spectators will be able to watch some of the world’s best riders speeding through the London streets. The most promising female and junior riders in the country will take part in the Grand Prix criterium races and to cap it all off, the London-Surrey Classic will feature pro riders competing for glory in a race that will echo the action and atmosphere of last year’s dramatic Olympic road race.
BikeRadar, together with sister site Cyclingnews.com and magazines Cycling Plus and Procycling will bring you all the Prudential RideLondon action.
