RideLondon FreeCycleBritain's biggest bike festival gets under way with the RideLondon FreeCycle, in which around 50,000 riders are expected to take part. A celebration of cycling, the event gives cyclists of all abilities the chance to ride through traffic-free streets in central London. An eight-mile loop will take in some of London's most iconic sights, with participants free to stop and start, take photos and experience the fun and freedom of riding without worrying about cars, lorries and buses. From Tower Bridge to Buckingham Palace and the Houses of Parliament, London's greatest sights will create an inspiring backdrop for a memorable day of cycling - and if you finish and want some more, then simply ride the route a second time. The FreeCycle is the first of four events over the weekend, with Sunday's programme featuring the RideLondon GrandPrix, RideLondon 100 and RideLondon Classic. You can try all manner of bike related activities at venues across London including bike polo in St Paul's Churchyard, Leadenhall Market will be transformed into the London Bike Market and there'll be an attempt to set a new Guinness World Record for the world's biggest bike bell ring at Guildhall Yard. Tower Hill is hosting a pedal-powered garden party, and there's a big screen and stage with all-day entertainment at Green Park, one of five main festival zones for the RideLondon weekend.

 

About The Mall

Running from Buckingham Palace to Admiralty Arch and Trafalgar Square, The Mall is a long red tarmac road which splits St James's Park on the south side from St James's Palace and Green Park on the north. Closed to traffic on Sundays and public holidays, the tree-lined Mall offers one of London's most memorable views of the Queen's official residence. More about The Mall
