All roads lead to cycling fest

DETAILS of road closures to be implemented during the forthcoming RideLondon-Surrey races have been announced.

Prudential Ride London 2013Four villages will be impacted by the Prudential-sponsored events, with the 100-mile and Classic editions of the hugely popular cycling challenge set to cut through the borough once again.

Roads in Byfleet, Pyrford, Ripley and West Byfleet will be closed from 5am on race day – Sunday 31 July – and are set to re-open just after noon, once the amateurs competing in the ‘100’ race have streamed past.

Rolling closures will then be in place from around 1.30pm to 3pm as the professionals put the pedal to the metal in the Classic race. There are lots of great places to watch the cycling and enjoy the festive atmosphere around the route, with two major events right here in the borough.
