Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle details announced

Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle returns on Saturday, July 29th  2017, offering riders of all ages and abilities the opportunity to cycle around eight miles of traffic-free, central London roads.

The event, which is part of a festival of cycling led by the Mayor of London’s office, enables riders to pass London landmarks including Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, St Paul’s Cathedral and the Bank of England and again goes south of the river with a loop over Waterloo Bridge.

Returning to FreeCycle this year is stunt cyclist Andrei Burton who will be attempting to break more Guinness World Records at the London Trials Championship presented by Buxton in Green Park.

The Festival Zones, which are dispersed throughout the route, will feature stunt cyclists, a Street Velodrome, a mountain bike course, bike polo, Penny Farthing polo, stunt unicyclists, a pedal-powered juice bar, BMX tryouts, a pedal-powered quiz, Cycle Scalextrics, the London Bike Market, a jump box ramp show, cycle cinema, drumming cyclists, a picnic area and more.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “We are looking forward to welcoming tens of thousands of cyclists of all ages and abilities to Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle. It is a particularly brilliant opportunity for new cyclists to build their confidence on two wheels, and on a route that will take them past some of the most iconic sights of our city.”
