Prudential RideLondon’s Olympic legacy cycling festival begins on Saturday 3 August and includes a massive FreeCycle around 8 miles of closed London streets and its most popular landmarks, a world record attempt, and a spectacular sprint finish in the Grand Prix.
Sunday 4 August will see 25,000 cyclists riding almost the same route as the 2012 Olympic road race in the London-Surrey 100 – see maps of the weekend’s cycle routes. They will be followed by 150 of the world’s elite cyclists, who will compete in the Classic event.
The CTC (the national organisation of which we are a member group) is seeking volunteers from among its members to help with the marshalling of the events.
Opportunities for volunteering include:
- – Route safety marshals
- – Crossing marshals
- – Flag marshals directing cycle traffic
- – Volunteer leaders
Volunteers will receive:
- – a uniform
- – lunch
- – transportation to your volunteer location will be provided from certain points in London and Surrey
- – training and safety briefings
- – in addition CTC will receive a small donation
