Tour of Britain
On Sunday 18 September, 96 professional cyclists will race over two stages as the battle for the Tour of Britain reaches a climax in Whitehall.
The tour takes place over eight days and nine stages, starting in the Scottish Borders on 11 September.
This is the eighth time the Tour of Britain has come to the
Capital. The world-class sporting spectacle has each year
attracted Olympic, world, commonwealth champions and
Tour de France stage winners to race in London.
The TfL London stages
In a change from recent years, some of the world's top cyclists will take on the challenge of a 10km individual time trial the morning before the Tour of Britain finishes with its traditional circuit race over 80km on a 10km circuit in the afternoon.
Members of the public will have the opportunity to compare themselves against the professionals with The Prostate Cancer Charity Tour Ride London. Details of how to sign-up and help combat prostate cancer by raising funds and awareness for The Prostate Cancer Charity will be available at the Tour Ride website.
The London Cycling Revolution
Londoners and visitors are being encouraged to join the Capital's Cycling Revolution. The Mayor of London and Transport for London are investing £92m in 2011/12 on a range of cycle projects, including Barclays Cycle Superhighways and Barclays Cycle Hire with the aim to increase cycling in the Capital.
