RideLondon is a global charity fundraising event that comes to Greater London each summer. It is organised by the Mayor of London and his agencies and is a key part of the London 2012 Games Legacy Programme.
Kingston plays its part to make the annual event a success. The event encourages participation in sport – especially cycling locally. it also puts Kingston back on the international stage as people across the world watch the elite cyclists complete.
This year RideLondon will be taking place on Saturday 29 July and Sunday 30 July.
Routes have now been confirmed, and it's worth noting that several roads in the area will be closed during the weekend to make way for the cyclists, but all shops and businesses will be open as usual.
Kingston will also provide the perfect location to watch RideLondon, and spectators will be encouraged to cheer on some of the country's best sportsmen and women throughout the weekend.
