RideLondon ClassicApproximately 150 of the world's top cyclists return to the capital to compete in the RideLondon Classic - the biggest ever professional one-day race in Britain. The Classic is tipped to be part of the UCI's official race calendar and so the 125-140 mile race should attract all of cycling's major teams. The Classic is the blue-riband event of the RideLondon cycling festival taking place over the first weekend of August. Covering a variation on the London 2012 Olympic Road Race route, the Classic will follow the same route as the RideLondon 100 course but include an extension through the Surrey Hills. Starting at the new Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park at 12.30pm and finishing on The Mall in the shadow of Buckingham Palace, the televised race will pass through nine London boroughs as well as the county of Surrey.

 

About Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

A year after the 2012 London Olympic Games, the former Olympic Park re-opened as the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park - a site of over 250 acres of beautifully landscaped open space and 6.5 km of waterways. The opening of the north park on Saturday 27th July 2013 was the first phase of transforming the Olympic Park while the rest of the 560 acre park opens in spring 2014.
