Roll up, roll up for the Ride London-Surrey 100

It's all happening in London this weekend with the now traditional Prudential Ride London series of events.

The good news is the forecast is for perfect cycling weather, with temperatures of 22 degrees, sunny intervals and almost no wind.

The weekend began today (Friday 29) with a grand prix at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, which included a handcycle race, youth races, BMX races and Danny McAskill's Drop and Roll Tour.

Tomorrow, Saturday July 30, is the Prudential RideLondon Freecycle where cyclists of all ages take to London Streets which are entirely closed to traffic and run past the capital's best-known landmarks. The RideLondon Classique women's race also takes place on Saturday, offering the biggest prize purse in Women's one-day racing which equals the prize for the men's race. There's also a Brompton race

Then on Sunday, July 31 it's the big one. There's the RideLondon 46, launched by Sir Bradley Wiggo for younger riders, which runs from the QE Olympic Park to the Mall . Also starting at the Olympic Park is the Ride London-Surrey 100, the key event of the weekend for amateur riders, when 26,000 of them will ride out to Surrey and back, finishing on The Mall. 

After the RideLondon-Surrey 100 it's the turn of the pros. The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic is a race of 150 pro cyclists starting from Horse Guards Parade and taking in most of the  RideLondon-Surrey 100 route. Tour de France 2016 winner Chris Froome is lined up to take part, along with a list of the biggest names known to cycling.
