Road closures and re-openings
NEW: Live road re-openings
Visit our dedicated webpage to find out about live road re-openings as they happen.
A number of roads which make up the route will be closed on Sunday 4 August. This is to ensure the cyclists taking part in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 and Classic are safe from passing traffic.
Find out how to plan your journey on Sunday 4 August.
On Sunday, drivers entering a road that leads to a closure will be made aware of restrictions. Each road closure point will be manned by an event steward to ensure the event route is secured.
What time will roads close?
The roads that make up the route in Surrey will begin to close from 5am. This is to allow time for barriers to be installed, security checks to be carried out and stewards and volunteers to get in place.
- From Hampton Court Bridge to Dorking, roads will begin to close from 5am.
- From Dorking to Seething Wells, roads will begin to close from 7.30am.
- From Forest Green to Ockley, roads used for the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic only will begin to close from 1pm.
Cars parked on the event routes will be removed from midnight on Saturday night. If you usually park your car on an affected road, we recommend that you move it on Saturday evening to a nearby road that doesn't have parking restrictions.
While the events are taking place, there will be no access for traffic on or across these roads, except for emergency services. Pedestrians and cyclists will be able to cross the route while there are no cyclists passing through.
What time will roads re-open?
After both events pass through, roads will remain closed until it is safe to re-open them, once crowds disperse and barriers are removed.

There are three cycling diversion routes in Surrey (see map for locations) which may be used by some cyclists to ensure they are able to finish the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 before the professional race leaves Surrey and heads back into London. It’s estimated that there won’t be many cyclists using these diversion routes.
These routes may also be used for all cyclists if an incident happens further along the route. To make sure these roads are ready, parking restrictions will be in place.
The diversion routes are marked with red and yellow lines on the route map.
The diversion routes near Leith Hill (A25) and Box Hill (A24) will already be closed for the event but the A246 from East Horsley to Leatherhead will not be closed, unless there is an incident and the road is used as part of the main event route.
If cyclists use the A246 diversion route, they’ll be asked to obey the rules of the road, as traffic will be passing through.
