Whether you’re supporting a family member or friend taking part, or would just like to cheer on the riders, the county has plenty of great viewpoints to spectate. Even if cycling is not your thing, there are many fan zones and local events taking place across the route, over the course of the weekend with additional activities that will keep you and the family entertained for the whole day!

We’d advise you to stay local or park away from the route and walk/ cycle in, due to many closed and affected roads. RideLondon-Essex will bring local communities together and kick-start celebrations ahead of the Queen’s Jubilee, the weekend after. The route spans across 65 miles of Essex roads, so if you can’t get to a fan zone, and you’re on the route, enjoy the race from your front gardens, village greens or local town.

So head out to support your local businesses, find out about community initiatives, get to know your neighbours and rally on those who are taking part in the 60 and 100-mile challenge!
