Bicycle races are coming your way

Prudential RideLondon is the world’s greatest festival of cycling with 100,000+ cyclists participating in events on traffic-free roads in London and Surrey. Events will take place in central London on Saturday 30 July 2016 and in London and Surrey on Sunday 31 July 2016.
Herewith the skinny on the implications for Kingston, Merton and Wandsworth.

I used to ride up Wimbledon Hill Road on my way to Richmond Park when I was training for London to Brighton. It damn near wasted me so I will be there at ten to six on Sunday evening to see the pros glide up it as if it wasn't there, but for the rest of the weekend I won't be caught dead any where near the road closures, fuss, itch and bother.
