The Prostate Cancer Charity London Ride is closing down 18km of iconic London riverside streets to cars and traffic from on Saturday 19 September. In their place will be 1000 cyclists, a host of professional riders.

This unique event has been developed in a partnership between the Tour of Britain and The Prostate Cancer Charity. The ride follows the official race route of the final leg of The Tour of Britain, which will see the professionals line up at 2pm the same day to compete for the title of The Tour of Britain Champion 2009.

Only 1,000 places are available, and all applicants must register to secure a place by visiting www.unitebycycling.org.uk - everyone who participates is encouraged to help raise funds for the charity.

The circuit features a 18km journey, starting on Westminster Bridge and taking in such sights as Big Ben, Whitehall, the Tower of London and the London Eye. The ride will be witnessed in front of an audience of 120,000 spectators – as well as being filmed for ITV4, as preparations are made for the start of the professional race at 2pm.
