The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100, taking place on 29 July 2018 and forms part of the London 2012 Olympics legacy events for cycling.

The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 mile sportive had its first start in 2015 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.
The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 is part of the larger RideLondon weekend, which also includes the RideLondon Free Cycle on Saturday 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 RideLondon Grand Prix on the evening of Saturday around a 1.3 mile circuit in Central London for Elite Women, Juniors and hand cyclists.
The Melia White House Hotel, is a 4 star hotel and is ideal for a longer stay and to bring non-riding partners and supporters. The hotel benefits from a prime central London location in a prestigious area in Regent’s Park within close proximity of London’s main attractions. Experienced cycling representatives including a bike mechanic will be there throughout the event to assist you with your preparation for the race. They also provide a special bike room for all riders from Friday the 27th of July where you can store your bike and make any last minute adjustments should they be required.
