Britain’s greatest one-day bike race, the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic, is back! This year's fast and furious showdown sees 150 of the world’s top pro cyclists take on a 124-mile (200km) route through London and Surrey.
Part of the Prudential RideLondon festival of cycling, the race (Category 1.HC on the UCI Europe Tour) offers the highest prize money pool of any one-day Classic and is televised live by BBC Sport.
The race sees 25 teams of six riders start on Horse Guards Road next to St James’s Park. They stream west through the capital, offering spectators a variety of great opportunities to support their cycling heroes along the route; a variation on the London 2012 Olympic Road Cycling Race route.
Head to the start area on Horse Guards Parade next to St James’s Park, where you can see the pro riders signing in and putting the finishing touches to their preparation ahead of the race. As well as being broadcast on the BBC, the race is shown on a big screen in Green Park.
