Passing sites such as Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square and Whitehall on every lap the circuit is great for spectators looking to see the world’s top riders racing on the streets of London.

Cycling in London 

Cycling continues to grow in London, with well over 650,000 journeys being made by bicycle each day.

Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London, wants to make London a byword for cycling around the world. Over the next five years, more will be invested than ever before to create more safe, easy and well-connected cycle routes across the Capital; to encourage more healthy and active travel.

New cycling infrastructure will help more Londoners get about quickly without having to use a car, which will benefit people’s health, improve air quality and make London’s roads safer.
