Part of the annual Prudential Ride London three-day festival. Get on your bike and see London’s top sights, free from traffic on an eight-mile circuit, which can be entered at any point.
The whole route starts and ends on the corner of Green Park and St James’s Park, though anyone is welcome to join at any point during the ride. The route includes views of Lincoln’s Inn Fields, Aldwych, South Bank, St Paul’s Cathedral, Buckingham Palace and Waterloo Bridge. Riders of all ages are invited to sign up, and bikes are available for hire. groups and families are advised that the route is busiest from 12:00-14:00.
If you need to pause the peddling (or you just feel like enjoying the festivities), there’s plenty of entertainment (and places to safely lock up your bikes) at the designated festival zones. This year’s events include stunt shows, a kids’ zone, and daring unicycle tricks. You can also security mark and register your own bike, try to break a Guiness World Record, or visit the Inclusive Cycling hub to try one of the adaptive bikes. See the official events page for full listings.
There are hydration stations, medical areas and bike mechanics to make sure you’re refreshed and can get help if you need ait at each site.
