The second annual Prudential RideLondon will hit the roads of London and Surrey this weekend, coming to Kensington and Chelsea on Sunday, 10th August.
Over 24,000 amateur riders and 150 professional cyclists will be taking part in the 100 mile marathon from East London out to Surrey and then back to the finishing line on The Mall.
Roads in the borough will be affected as the cyclists enter Knightsbridge and travel along the A4 before passing into Hammersmith and Fulham. Later in the day cyclists will return to the borough via King’s Road, Ashburnham Road, Cremorne Road, Cheyne Walk and Chelsea Embankment. A number of other local roads will be closed to traffic from the early hours of Sunday 10 August until the early evening to allow the event to pass safely through the borough.
Anticipated closures in Kensington and Chelsea:
Knightsbridge, Brompton Road and the Cromwell Road will close at 5am and are not expected to open until approximately 3pm.
King’s Road, Cheyne Walk and Chelsea Embankment will close at 7.30am and will remain closed until about 7pm.
Vehicles parked on the route will be removed. If you normally park your vehicle on any of the roads affected you will need to make alternative arrangements from midnight on Sunday 10 August.
