Positively Putney is thrilled to be welcoming thousands of cyclist to our town centre, as Prudential RideLondon, the world’s greatest festival of cycling, takes place during the first weekend in August (3-4).
The cycle route will be down Putney High Street and across Putney Bridge – and we have a great view for spectators to line the side of Putney High Street throughout the day to watch cyclists come past.
During Friday 2nd August and Saturday 3rd August, make sure you check out some cycle themed activities taking place in the town centre – with bike marking, bike cleaning and bike health checks taking place. You won’t want to miss it!
To accommodate the riders, the following roads will be closed to all vehicle traffic from 7.30am on the day. They are expected to reopen at around 7.30pm, although this timing is subject to change.
- Wimbledon Parkside SW19
- Tibbet’s Corner SW19
- Tibbet’s Ride SW15
- Putney Hill SW15
- Putney High Street SW15
Putney Bridge would normally be closed to traffic in both directions but will remain open to reduce pressure on local roads caused by the current indefinite closure of Hammersmith Bridge. As a result, localised vehicle traffic will be able to cross the bridge between the lower Richmond Road and Fulham High Street.
There will also be restrictions at Wandsworth Bridge which will be closed to all but local residents who need access.
