Line the streets as women's cycling's richest one-day event, as the Prudential RideLondon Classique returns to central London.

The world’s best female riders complete 20 laps of an exciting 2.1 mile (3.4km) circuit, taking in London icons such as The Mall, Buckingham Palace and Horse Guards Parade, as they battle it out for the 'Queen of the Classique' title.

The Classique, which is part of the Prudential RideLondon festival of cycling, has attracted big names in recent years, including former world and Olympic champion Marianne Vos, Commonwealth gold and Olympic silver medalist Lizzie Deignan, plus four-time Olympic and five-time world track champion Laura Kenny.

Lorena Wiebes won the title in 2019 after a dramatic end to the race which involved the original winner and defending Champion, Kirsten Wild, being denied first place due to being found culpable for a mass crash in the final sprint. 

Plan your Prudential RideLondon weekend

Before the weekend of riding and racing events starts, visit the Prudential RideLondon Cycling Show at ExCeL London. From 13 August, this free three-day event is home to leading experts in nutrition and coaching, who will share their knowledge, tips and tricks, as well as special guests from the elite world of cycling.

On Saturday, before watching the elite women take centre stage, jump on your bike and enjoy your own leisurely cycle around traffic-free streets of London in the Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle event. Get involved and head to one of six Festival Zones on the route.

On Sunday, support the riders in the RideLondon-Surrey 100, RideLondon-Surrey 46 and the RideLondon-Surrey 19 events, while enjoying a whole host of activities taking place along the route. Finish off the weekend by cheering on professional male cyclists in the RideLondon-Surrey Classic, which is part of the UCI WorldTour.
