RideLondon: The Cyclists are back Sunday 4 August

30 July 2013

On the 3 and 4 August, Prudential RideLondon, a world-class festival of cycling, is taking place in London.

On the 3 and 4 August, Prudential  RideLondon, a world-class festival of cycling, is taking place in London.  On Saturday 3 August the Freecycle is taking place around central London and on Sunday 4 August the RideLondon Surrey 100 and RideLondon Classic take place throughout London and Surrey.

Although the Fulham Road is not closed this year, the hospital site is surrounded by road closures for the majority of the day on Sunday 4 August, as the route goes from The Mall along the A4 and then back over Putney Bridge along King’s Road, Cheyne Walk and Chelsea Embankment. During the race, access to the Fulham Road is restricted and many bridges across the Thames will be closed to vehicles.  Pedestrian access is not affected, and trains and the underground will be running as normal, however bus routes will be affected.

We are fully committed to maintaining Trust operations over this period and access for urgent patients and traffic, including women in labour, burns patient referrals and blood specimen transfers.  London Ambulance is working closely with RideLondon organisers to ensure ambulance access will be maintained.  Parents who are expecting to give birth around the 4 August have been written to with special details about how they can reach the hospital by car on the 4 August.

If you are planning to attend the hospital on the 4 August please plan your journey carefully in advance.  Details about the routes affected are available on the RideLondon  or Transport for London websites:
