Date: Sunday 4th August 2019
Distance: 100 miles
Celebrating the legacy for cycling created by the London 2012 Olympic Games, RideLondon-Surrey has fast become as iconic for cyclists as the London Marathon is for runners, with the fourth edition of the event in 2016 attracting more than 25,000 amateur cyclists from around the UK and further afield.
The ride starts in the now famous Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, home to the Velodrome and scene of so many iconic moments in that glorious summer for British sport nearly 5 years ago. It then follows a 100-mile route on closed roads through the capital, the south west London suburbs and into Surrey’s stunning countryside. With leg-testing climbs, including both Box Hill and Leith Hill, and a route made famous by the world’s best cyclists at the London 2012 Olympics, it’s a truly spectacular event for all involved. RideLondon-Surrey 100 finishes on The Mall in central London, shortly before 150 professional cyclists race in the RideLondon-Surrey Classic on a similar route.

Frequently asked questions
We are a small charity with limited resources but we would give you as much support with your fundraising as we can, including help with setting up a fundraising page and promoting your fundraising. As a member of Team AP you would receive a free, personalised cycling jersey to wear on the day and during your training.
Unfortunately we would not be able to provide you with any advice or guidance on training but the RideLondon website contains a wealth of information and advice on training plans, nutrition and gear.
We have a limited number of places in RideLondon which come at significant expense to the charity so, of course, we are keen to maximise our fundraising. We believe that £750 is a very realistic target for most people and, indeed, we would hope that our participant could raise much more than this. If you do not think you could raise at least £750 then we would be very unlikely to consider your application.
