Plan ahead to avoid cycling event road closures

Residents are once again being strongly encouraged to plan ahead to avoid any traffic delays caused by the Prudential RideLondon cycling events later this month.

Several key roads thorough Hammersmith & Fulham will be closed to allow the annual mass-cycling event to pass through on Sunday 29 July.

The weekend is billed as a festival of cycling, with several events taking place on Saturday 28 July also, but the road closures in H&F are only on the Sunday.

The outbound route for Sunday’s events passes along the A4 in Hammersmith as it heads to Surrey, before returning across Putney Bridge and along Kings Road in Fulham before finishing on The Mall in central London.

These roads will be closed while the events are in progress, meaning some residents could find themselves unable to leave or access their street by car. To help residents plan, the Prudential RideLondon website has detailed information on road closures and timetables for each event.

The RideLondon-Surrey 100 sportive is the main amateur rider event with around 25,000 amateur riders setting off in groups, beginning in the early hours of Sunday. The 100-mile sportive largely replicates the route of the 2012 Olympic cycling road race and has been held each year since the 2012 Games.

The RideLondon-Surrey 100 is the largest annual cycling fundraising event on the planet – riders have raised millions of pounds for good causes since the event began in 2013.
