The RideLondon FreeCycle offers the chance for all the family to enjoy a traffic-free route on closed roads through central London, passing some of the capital’s most iconic landmarks. Everyone is welcome, no matter what their age or ability. Cyclists may cycle at any pace and as many times round the route as they like, stopping along the way to enjoy a range of free bike-based entertainment and activities at Festival Zones.
We had about 100 cyclists riding into London and nearly 50 riding home. Immediate reaction was positive despite the traffic between Chiswick and Kensington, the awkwardness of turning out of Kensington Gardens and a jam on Hammersmith Bridge.
