Online registration now open for 2018 Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100

Want a chance of riding world's biggest sportive? Entries for ballot close once 80,000 people have applied...

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.

They should really give some kind of preference to first timers. 5th time applying, no luck yet...

After the better reviews of this year's "traffic" I've registered again to do it a third time.

What I really want though, is for them to actually publicise the 46 properly, and double the entry size.  Let's be honest, the best part of the 100 is starting in the Olympic Park, cruising through Central London on closed roads, out to Hampton Court, then back through Wimbledon, along the Embankment and up the Mall.  The run out to Ripley is nice, the hills are fine, the run back through Epsom etc is fun because you know it's a blast back home, but a large proportion of the people who sign up to the 100 are just doing it for the 'festival' atmosphere and would find the 46 perfectly satisfying - 3-4 hours riding, the 'iconic landmarks', a slightly later start, and all the fun of the fair.  

Then you'd have fewer people stopping and walking on the hills, which would improve the experience for those who are taking it a little more seriously; you could make it 18-20,000 on the 100 and 10,000 on the 46 without any hassle.  And those extra people taking on the shorter distance are the real 'Olympic legacy' - people who need a carrot to get them active, but wouldn't sign up to the 100 because it sounds like a huge distance.

Be aware that they may change the date when they realise it clashes with the Dunwich dynamo  1
