Road closures on Sunday for Ride London bike event

Published: Monday 24th July 17

Residents are being reminded that the Prudential Ride London cycle event this coming Sunday (July 30) will affect parking and travel in many parts of the borough.

Thousands of cyclists, both amateur and professional, are expected to take part in Sunday’s series of bike events, which are based largely on the London 2012 Olympic cycling races.

Riders will travel from the Olympic park in east London to the Surrey Hills, taking them through Putney. Crowds of spectators are expected to line the route and Putney High Street’s shops, bars, restaurants, pubs and cafes will be open for business on the day.

As a consequence, the following local roads will be closed to all vehicle traffic from 7.30am on Sunday. They are expected to reopen at around 7.30pm, although this timing is subject to change.

  • Wimbledon Parkside SW19
  • Tibbet’s Corner SW19
  • Tibbet’s Ride SW15
  • Putney Hill SW15
  • Putney High Street SW15 (closed from 6am)
  • Putney Bridge SW15 (southbound)

Kingston, Chelsea, Albert and Battersea Bridges will all be closed while Wandsworth Bridge will be closed with access for residents only from 7am to around 7.30pm. There will be northbound access only on Putney Bridge.

The A3 will be open, although the exit slip roads at Esher Common, Coombe Lane and Tibbet’s Corner will be closed.

Isn't it time we had Prudential Bike Ride Glasgow/Edinburgh, Cardiff or Belfast - sure the different UK countries would appreciate it.
