Online registration has opened for next year’s Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 sportive.
The seventh edition of the event, which made its debut in 2013, will take place on Sunday 4 August 2019.
Organisers say that the exact route will be confirmed after a review of this year’s event.
The timing of the event next year means that it will not clash with the final day of the Tour de France, which took place a week later than usual this year to minimise overlap with the FIFA World Cup.
Registration will be open until 80,000 registrations have been received or until 4 January 2019, whichever happens first, and can be done online here.
The entry fee for the RideLondon-Surrey 100 will remain unchanged from this year at £69.
Event director Hugh Brasher said: "The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 is now the most popular sportive in the world with more people applying to ride this event than any other ride on the international calendar.
“More than 125,000 riders have crossed the famous finish line on The Mall since the event began in 2013, raising tens of millions of pounds for charity on the way."
Details of separate ballots for the shorter 46- and 19-mile sportives that each take in part of the route will be announced in 2019.
