Residents, community groups and businesses planning any activities on Sunday 31 July 2016 need to be aware that there will be significant traffic disruption in the borough on that day due to the Prudential RideLondon cycling event.

At this stage the final route and timings have not been confirmed but we expect both to be broadly similar to that of previous years. Last year roads in Kensington and Chelsea were closed from 5am and reopened at about 8pm.

Last year’s route was along the following roads:


Brompton Road

Cromwell Road (A4)

King’s Road

Cheyne Walk

Ashburnham Road

Cremorne Road

Chelsea Embankment


Given the scale of the event several other local roads were affected and had restricted access.

As the route for the event goes through east, central and west London before heading out to Surrey it requires over 100 miles of road to be closed which will have a major impact on getting around the Capital.  If you are planning any special events such as weddings or making a journey out to an airport it will be advisable to plan ahead. The event organisers also have a helpdesk which can be contacted on 0345 894 9773 or you can email

Further information will be found during the build-up to the event on the organiser’s website

Transport for London will have details of road closures and any alterations to public transport routes and timetables on its website when confirmed

The Council will also be publicising information in on its website and in its quarterly newspaper Royal Borough as well as on its official twitter feed.
