Sign up for Prudential Ride London 2020 and help support our limbless veterans!

The Prudential Ride London-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 finishing on The Mall in central London. With leg-testing climbs 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.

What type of bikes are permitted?

The following cycles are permitted in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100:

e-bikes – see here for more information.

Road Bike – probably the most common bicycle used in the event due to comfort and efficiency over a long distance.

Hybrid – typically more upright riding position designed for multi-surfaces. Usually more robust tyres and construction.

Mountain Bike – designed for off-road use with knobbly tyres. Comfortable but not efficient for a long road ride. Use slick tyres if riding on roads.

Single Speed – single speeds with a fixed or freewheel are permitted as long as they have two handlebar-operated brakes – one front and one rear.

Folding Bike – designed for the commute. Please consider carefully if this is the most appropriate bike to use.

Cruiser Bike – heavy, upright, minimal gears. Not designed for sportives. Although permitted, these bikes are not recommended for a 19-mile ride.

Tricycles – offers an option for those requiring more balance. Lightweight models designed to be efficient over long distances. Heavier than a road bike due to the extra frame and wheel. Please consider the suitability of this bike for the route.

Handcycles – All handcycles and hybrids – including tricycles and recumbent bikes – will be permitted at the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 19.

There will be 100 tandems and 50 tricycles allowed this year. Preference will be given to riders with a disability. If you are a visually impaired or disabled rider and have been accepted via the ballot, you must contact assistedrider@ridelondon.co.uk in order to process your entry. For tandems, only one rider needs to have been successful in the ballot. Entrants with a disability will be charged – entrants where neither rider has a disability will be charged for both riders.

By fundraising for Blesma you’ll be transforming lives

Matt Weston was just 20 when he lost three limbs to a bomb blast in Afghanistan. 

"All I remember is a flash, my ears ringing, and the sense of falling. I lost both my legs and my right arm below the elbow in the blast. My rehab has been long, slow and difficult. I was in intensive care for a while and was in hospital for three months, and I've just had my fiftieth operation."

"If my chair breaks and I can't repair it, Blesma will get it done. I was in a bad place after my injury but Blesma have been there for me, by my side from day one."
