Similar to the previous one-day editions of the RideLondon Classique, the final Stage is a multi-lap circuit race in the centre of London. The route has been tweaked from previous editions of the race, with a start and finish on Victoria Embankment beside the River Thames. The route has also been made longer with two short (7.3km) laps and seven long (10.1km) laps on a circuit that includes some of London’s most famous streets, including Piccadilly, Pall Mall and the Strand.

Where to watch Stage Three

Pick a spot anywhere along the central London circuit on Stage Three and you’ll see the peloton whizz by on multiple occasions for about two hours. You could even start the day by participating in the free RideLondon FreeCycle, which will take place on parts of the Classique route, before watching the professionals take to the streets for the RideLondon finale.

The London Underground is the best way to get around – here is a list of stations you can alight at to get close to the action.

  • The multi-lap Stage Three circuit starts on Victoria Embankment at 15:45. You can then stay here and watch as the cyclists pass this iconic part of the route another eight times.

    Expected timings:
    15:45, 15:55, 16:06, 16:19, 16:32, 16:46, 16:59, 17:12, 17:26 and 17:39
  • Why not watch the peloton pass through the City of London at Bank?

    Expected timings:
    15:46, 15:56, 16:10, 16:23, 16:37, 16:50, 17:04, 17:17 and 17:31

We wanted to make Stage Three more of a city circuit along the lines of a World Championships course you would have in a big city. We’re very excited with how this stage has turned out. It’s not entirely a sprinter’s day – it’s a day with opportunities with a nice long finishing straight along Embankment.
