Roads will be closed in the borough and across London and Surrey on Sunday 30 July and public transport will also be disrupted when thousands of cyclists take part in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100.
The annual mass participation cycling event is a great spectacle and exciting challenge for those taking part but it does have a major impact on roads across London and Surrey.
The route will be the same as in previous years which is as follows :
Cromwell Road (A4)
Roads will close from about 5am on the Sunday and are expected to reopen at about 8pm.
Other local roads will also be affected and have restricted vehicular access, particularly in the south of the borough. For residents who live in the Lots Road area, surrounded by the event route, getting in and out will be aided by the temporary lifting of the Townmead Road barrier, but traffic will be very heavy.
Anyone who usually parks on a road used by the event should move their vehicle the night before. Vehicles cannot be parked on the route in the borough from 11pm on Saturday 29 July. Vehicles parked on the route, or parked in a suspended bay will be removed.
As the route for the event goes through east, central and west London before heading out to Surrey it requires over 100 miles of road to be closed which will have a major impact on getting around the Capital.
The event organisers have a helpdesk which can be contacted for more information on 0345 894 9773 or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org
The helpdesk will be open from Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm. During the weekend it will be open between 8am and 5pm on Saturday 29 July and 5am and 7pm on Sunday 30 July.
