Whilst I was out riding I noticed lots of warning signs for roads and byways closed on 30th July. Areas impacted Ranmore, Newlands Corner, Abinger Hammer, Holmbury St Mary, Leith Hill, Dorking, Box Hill.
There is a big cycle event going on, I would not plan any rides around that part of Surrey.
Starting from Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in east London, cyclists head past Canary Wharf and through the City of London before cycling west along Piccadilly and the A4 at Hammersmith. Riders first cross the River Thames at Chiswick and pass through Richmond Park and the heart of Kingston-upon-Thames, before crossing Hampton Court Bridge along the route made famous by both the road race and time-trial events during the London 2012 Olympic Games.
There's plenty of stunning Surrey countryside on offer as cyclists head south past Newlands Corner, Abinger Hammer and Holmbury St Mary before tackling the biggest ascent on the route at Leith Hill. After a well-earned descent towards Dorking, it's onto the next challenge: the world-famous zig-zags of Box Hill.
After heading north through Leatherhead, Oxshott and Esher the route takes riders back into London through Kingston and over Putney Bridge to cross the River Thames for a final time. The route then follows the Embankment all the way alongside the Thames, heading past some of London’s most famous landmarks as it makes its way across Parliament Square and up Whitehall.
Post your planned rides here. Or request a leader for a ride.
