Online registration is now open for next year’s Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100, the world’s biggest sportive.
The 2018 edition will take place on Sunday 29 July as part of the that weekend’s sixth Prudential RideLondon festival.
Entry fees for the closed road event have been held at £69, the same as this year, and you can register here.
Registration will be closed on 5 January 2018 or once 80,000 people have registered, whichever comes first, with a ballot then determining who is allocated a place.
Online registration for places on the shorter Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 46 event, which made its debut in 2016, will open next year.
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 100,000 riders have crossed the famous finish line on The Mall in the first five years of the event, raising tens of millions of pounds for charity on the way."
At this year’s Prudential RideLondon, around 100,000 in total rode in the various events - most of those on the family-friendly FreeCycle event on the Saturday on an eight-mile closed road circuit in the heart of the capital.
