Prudential RideLondon, the world’s greatest festival of cycling and two-time winner of the BT Sport Industry Awards Participation Event of the Year, will feature 100,000+ riders over the weekend of 28-29 July 2018.
We have a limited number of guaranteed entries for media for the 2018 Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 and the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 46 sportives on Sunday 29 July.
The 100 will feature 25,000 riders, starting at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park (from 05:45) and following a 100-mile route on closed roads through the capital and into Surrey’s stunning countryside and the leg-testing climbs of Box Hill and Leith Hill before returning to London and a spectacular finish on The Mall in St James’s Park.
The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 46 will see 5,000 riders depart from Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park from 09:00, after the last wave of riders has started the 100. Riders will follow the same route as the 100 for the first 27 miles before taking a two-mile route which then links up with the last 17 miles through London to the finish on The Mall.
If you are interested in applying for a media guaranteed place to ride in either the 100 or the 46 (standard entry fees of £69/£39 apply), please email your name, job title, media organisation and preferred event to email@example.com, with the subject line Prudential RideLondon Guaranteed Entry.
Closing date for applications: 17:00 on Friday 13 April 2018.
