Major road closures will begin from 5am on Sunday 2 August in preparation for Prudential RideLondon. This event will see both amateur and professional cyclists tackling a course that runs from the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park for the amateurs and Horse Guards Parade for the professionals, through central London before heading out of the city and on to Surrey. The riders then return back through London for a finish on The Mall.

Closing 100 miles of roads and bridges across London and Surrey will have a major impact on traffic, public transport and parking. It is not just the roads the cyclists ride along that will be affected. Many other local roads will be closed to traffic from the early hours of Sunday 2 August to allow the event to pass safely through the borough. It is anticipated roads will remain closed until the early evening. 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 on Sunday 2 August.
