Prudential RideLondon 2018: logistics on the day
We can’t wait to meet you and cheer you on at this year's Prudential RideLondon race weekend. Check out the information below to find out about collecting you pack at the Expo, and the support we'll be offering on the day.
This is where you need to go to pick up your race number and timing chip for the big day. The Expo runs from the Thursday to the Saturday, and you need to make sure you go at some point to collect your pack. We won't be there, but do have a look around at stands. There will be lots to look at and you'll have the chance to pick up any last-minute gear or supplies.
The Expo is open at the following times:
- Thursday 26 July: 10am to 8pm
- Friday 27 July: 10am to 8pm
- Saturday 28 July: 9am to 5pm.
Be aware that Saturday will be the busiest day, and there are always queues to get in. Make sure you factor this into your plans. More information about the Expo, and what to do if you're unable to collect your race number in person, please take a look at the excellent FAQs on the Prudential RideLondon website.
Marie Curie cheer points
We’ll have a dedicated Marie Curie cheer point along the route at Kingston-upon-Thames to make sure you feel supported as you take on this incredible challenge. The cheer points are at 25 miles (outward) and 86 miles (inward) on the route.
We’ll be hard to miss ... Look out for the yellow flags, banners and bunting! Our exact position will be:
- 119 London Rd, Kingston upon Thames KT2 6NH* (the postcode is opposite the VSO building)
- the cheer station will be manned between 7am and 3pm so we can see as many of our riders as possible.
If you’ve got friends, family or colleagues coming along, why not ask them to come and join us at our Marie Curie cheer points? We'll kit them out with all things yellow. Plus, we’ll have banger sticks and whistles to help them make as much noise as possible!
*Please note while we aim to be at this exact location, sometimes on the day it's not possible – so just look out for our yellow flags and balloons which will help you spot us.
We'd like to welcome you and your friends and family to join us for a celebration picnic in Green Park after your ride. The picnic will be at the M at the Meet and Greet area, we'll be hard to miss. Join us for a tasty buffet of delicious sandwiches and treats and drinks, maybe even beer. Can't wait to see you there.
