The following is an extract from the latest edition of Surrey Matters:
The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 46 mile cycle ride is the shorter distance alternative to the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 mile route. The ride is on traffic-free roads and is a great way for newer and younger cyclists to have a go at their first mass-participation event. If you've never cycled on closed roads it's a great experience, and to do this through London and Surrey is an opportunity not to be missed.
About 5,000 riders are expected to set off on Sunday 4 August from Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in east London. The 46 mile ride starts immediately after the last wave of Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 riders have started and follows the same route for the first 27 miles. Then riders take a new two-mile route to link up with the last 17 miles of the 100 through London to finish on The Mall in front of Buckingham Palace.
