Ride London-Surrey100 – Sunday 4th August 2019

The A-T Society is celebrating our 30th-anniversary in 2019. To help make it a year to remember cyclists in our Ride London-Surrey100 A-Team can register for £30 with no minimum sponsorship required! We ask that you raise as much as you can and will reward everyone raising £300 plus with a free A-T Society technical cycling jersey.

 

Celebrating the legacy for cycling created by the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 starts in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, then follows a 100-mile route on closed roads through the capital and into Surrey’s stunning countryside. With leg-testing climbs and a route made famous by the world’s best cyclists, it’s a truly memorable event for all involved.

The route offers a perfect traffic-free ride for a range of cycling abilities.

The Start

 

Starting from Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in east London, cyclists head past Canary Wharf and through the City of London before cycling west along Piccadilly and the A4 at Hammersmith. Riders first cross the River Thames at Chiswick and pass through Richmond Park and the heart of Kingston-upon-Thames, before crossing Hampton Court Bridge along the route made famous by both the road race and time-trial events during the London 2012 Olympic Games.

There’s plenty of stunning Surrey countryside on offer as cyclists head south past Newlands Corner, Abinger Hammer and Holmbury St Mary before tackling the biggest ascent on the route at Leith Hill. After a well-earned descent towards Dorking, it’s onto the next challenge: the world-famous zig-zags of Box Hill.

After heading north through Leatherhead, Oxshott and Esher the route takes riders back into London through Kingston and over Putney Bridge to cross the River Thames for a final time. The route then follows the Embankment all the way alongside the Thames, heading past some of London’s most famous landmarks as it makes its way across Parliament Square and up Whitehall.

 

The route then swings left at Trafalgar Square, with riders streaming under Admiralty Arch before a spectacular finish on The Mall.

 

Make 2019 a year to remember by joining our A-Team and help children and young people live well with A-T.
£300 could give a family going through tough times a special day out day together followed by an overnight stay in a hotel.
Once you have registered we will send you a fundraising pack and support you all the way.
