The Prudential RideLondon Freecycle is taking place on Saturday 3rd August, giving participants the rare opportunity to enjoy a motor-traffic free route around Central London. LCC will be leading rides from every London borough into the event, and back home again. These rides allow families and those less confident at cycling on London’s busy roads to make their way to the event at a relaxed pace. 

To make sure the event is safe and enjoyable for all, we need volunteers to help lead and marshal the rides, working as part of a team of local LCC group members, cycle trainers and volunteers. The rides will start between 08.30 and 10.00 and typically get into the event for about 11.00. The return rides will depart at 15.00 back towards the start point in each borough.

What we’re looking for:

• Experienced cyclists who are used to cycling in groups. This could be as part of a cycling club or more informal riding.

• Confident and friendly people who are willing to communicate with pedestrians and car drivers whilst cycling alongside less experienced riders.

• Your cycling skills should be at or above Bikeability Level 3

We are offering evening training courses if you want to build your skill levels and confidence so you can help out: more details here

We are actively looking for cycling clubs or groups of cycling club members to ‘adopt’ a ride from their local area. This is an excellent way to help other cyclists in your area and link your club into the local community. Ideally you would be able to provide a ride leader, back mark and a few marshals, and work with other marshals from the local community to support a large group of less experienced riders.
