The Prudential RideLondon days (3rd and 4th August) and accompanying road closures present problems to those with limited mobility who rely on their vehicle to get around locally. What help is being offered to them to maintain their independence around the event?

RideLondon can arrange for Managed Access Plans to assist people with mobility issues to complete essential journeys during the event weekend, including those who are reliant on vehicles. Every year, Transport for London (TfL) works with a large number of residents and businesses prior to the weekend to make specific arrangements to ensure their journeys can be completed as expected during both days of the event.

Detailed road closure leaflets are also delivered by Royal Mail to more than 850,000 residential and business addresses across the route four weeks before the event.

People who require any additional support regarding road closures or journey planning can visit prudentialridelondon.co.uk/road-closures, or contact TfL’s Customer Services team on 0345 894 9773. The team will be available to help from 09:00 - 17:00 Monday to Friday, from 09:00 - 17:30 on Saturday 3 August and from 05:00 – 19:00 on Sunday 4 August.
