On 28–30 July, Prudential RideLondon, a world-class festival of cycling, is taking place in central London and Surrey. On Saturday 29 July the Freecycle is taking place around central London and on Sunday 30 July the RideLondon Surrey 100, RideLondon-Surrey 46 and RideLondon Classic take place throughout London and Surrey.

Although Fulham Road is not closed, Chelsea and Westminster Hospital is surrounded by road and bridge closures for the majority of the day on Sunday 30 July, 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 will be controlled by stewards, trains and the underground will be running as normal, but bus routes will be affected.

During this period we are committed to maintaining Trust operations and access for urgent patients and traffic, including women in labour and burns patient referrals.  London Ambulance is working closely with RideLondon organisers to ensure ambulance access will be maintained. Parents who are expecting to give birth around that weekend should have been briefed by their community midwife with special details about how they can reach the hospital by car on 30 July.

If you need to be at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital on that weekend, please plan your journey carefully in advance and be aware that road and bridge closures will come into place several hours ahead of the event. Details about the routes affected are available on the RideLondon and Transport for London websites.
