Olympics Road Race Test Event – Sunday 14th August

Route of the Olympic Road Race

This Sunday sees world class cycling coming to the Borough, with the Olympic Road Race Test event taking place, passing through Richmond, Twickenham, Teddington and Hampton Court. British rider, Mark Cavendish, who won the Green Jersey in the Tour de France this year, has been confirmed as one of the competitors.

We’ve created a page with information on this and the Olympic Events that will take place in the Borough next year – Four in total. It includes what time the riders are estimated to arrive in the borough, where to watch the race and a detailed map of the route. It will be a great day out with the best riders from around the world on our doorstep. An excellent opportunity to showcase London after a difficult week.

Olympic Road Race and Time Trial comes to the London Borough of Richmond Upon Thames

Let us know where you decide to watch the race (and of course your favourite nearby pubs and cafes!) and we’ll share it here.
