With over 20,000 cyclists taking part on closed roads, the RideLondon-Surrey 100 launched in 2013 and established itself as one of Europe's biggest closed-road sportives.

With a 100 mile route starting in the capital and leading riders on a loop through the Surrey Hills, the ride made an icon of the Box Hill climb and was a sell-out every year.

The 2020 and 2021 editions were cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak, and in October 2020 the event faced another setback when Surrey County Council voted to withdraw support for RideLondon after the 2021 edition, despite a majority of residents surveyed being in favour of continuing the event.

But in November 2021 the organisers announced that RideLondon will return in 2022 with a brand new route in Essex.

Relaunched as RideLondon-Essex 100, the 2022 edition will take place on Sunday 29 May 2022.

Entries opened on 10 November 2021, with the first 10,000 places selling out in under 24 hours.

Remaining entries will be allocated via a random ballot which opens at 13:00 on Thursday 11 November and closes at 17:00 on Thursday 20 January 2022.
