This two day festival of cycling returns to London on 30th & 31st July 2016. A legacy of the 2012 Olympic Games, RideLondon was developed by the Mayor of London to encourage more people to cycle safely on London’s roads and is part of TfL’s cycling programme.
The FreeCycle takes place on Saturday 30th July and gives everyone the opportunity to cycle on traffic-free roads in central London. Streets will be closed to vehicles as thousands of people hop on their bikes to take in the sights of London. The route passes many famous landmarks, including Buckingham Palace and the Tower of London. There will also be a series of professional cycling races in London.
On Sunday 31 July, more than 25,000 amateur cyclists will race from Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to leafy Surrey before finishing on The Mall in central London.
