Prudential RideLondon
Prudential RideLondon is an annual world-class festival of cycling launched by the Mayor of London as part of his plan to create a long-term legacy from the London 2012 Games.

20,000 amateur cyclists pedalling a 100 mile route through London and Surrey


The Route:

All the Route roads closed and Un-Crossable except for emergencies!
I'm basically trapped as far as being able to use my car and so is everybody inside the route, all outside can't enter lol!

Finish line in the Mall !

keep fingers crossed for this one all!

Wow, Sunny-side-up! Didn't you get your copy of the leaflet?

Information for residents and businesses on the route

A leaflet was distributed at the beginning of July to residents and businesses on or near the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 and Classic routes, providing more information.

Seriously, that is pretty wild... not just one event (the marathon for amateurs), but actually, two back to back (the second for professional cyclists).

That sure is a huge area to completely shut down to any human vehicle movement in or out for a whole day, a Sunday at that, when folks are more likely to be out and about.

Internment or Quaranteen zone trial comes to mind.... hope you get through it ok. If you don't have to go anywhere, try not to worry about it... this time. Be sure to move your car if you usually park it on one of the road the cyclers will be using.... no sense in getting it towed away and having to pay a ticket!

Yeah a test Quaranteen zone for sure and thx MorningSong for the .... hope you get through it ok.

I just hope it's all quite on the day and just hope everyone else get through it ok!, one long target zone !

Talking quarantine zones, for long time I've noticed how a lot of the big Supermarkets (most food storage) are placed on major motorway routes around London, nice and quick to secure in the event ha!
