29th July to 3rd August 2015

Please note - entries are now closed. Register your interest in the 2016 Prudential Ride London by signing up for our newsletter.  

Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100, taking place on 2nd August 2015,  forms part of the London 2012 Olympics legacy events for cycling. It is your opportunity to cycle on closed roads around London, and most importantly for cyclo sportive riders, ride a route that replicates much of the 2012 Olympics Road Race.

100,000 cyclists will apply through the ballot to enter the 2015 Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100, but only 25,000 people will be on the start line.  Sports Tours International are proud to be able to offer international cyclists the chance to be there with one of our hotel packages. (For those who already have an entry).

The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 mile sportive had its start in 2014 at the new Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, then it followed closed roads through the Capital out into Surrey following much of the 2012 Olympic road race route.  From Surrey it then came back towards the centre of London taking in some of the UK's most famous landmarks before finishing on The Mall, home to many famous events in British history, and overlooked by Buckingham Palace, home to the British Royal Family.

2015 Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 is part of the larger RideLondon weekend, which also includes the Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle on Saturday the 1st of August 2015 where up to 70,000 cyclists of all ages and abilities will ride freely (and non-competively) around an iconic 8 mile circuit in Central London.

There is also the Prudential RideLondon Grand Prix on the evening of Saturday 1st August 2015 around a 1.3 mile circuit in Central London for Elite Women, Juniors and hand cyclists. Furthermore there is the 1.1 UCI ranked 2015 Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic road race, starting around 12:30pm from Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, featuring 160 of the top pro cyclists in the World riding the Olympic Road race route after the 2015 Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 participants have been through the course, eventually finishing too on The Mall.

Virgin Money London Marathon has become the World's largest fund-raising marathon run. The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 intends to become the same for cycling.  

Hotel Packages for the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 are now available to book online, however if you need a specific length of stay in London, please let us know directly.
