Picture the scene. 

You're on a sprint down London's Mall with the line in sight. Crowds of fans wave British flags on each flank, cheering and grinding every last turn of the pedal out of you. But you're not Mark Cavendish or Chris Froome about to finish London 2012. You're, well you're you! Feeling like a star is all part of the incredible RideLondon 100 experience. Here's some more ways in which you can't afford to miss this cyling extravaganza...    

Mass start in the Olympic Park

1. You're one of 30,000

It's the biggest UK amateur cycling sportive of its kind. Some 30,000 pairs of tyres will hit the streets before breaking out into prime Surrey countryside. As you sit there poised at the start, in your thousands, you'll realise there's no atmosphere or buzz quite like it...
Finish on The Mall in front of Buckingham Palace

2. London like never before

Enjoy some famous inner city's landmarks on closed, traffic-free roads. The event starts at the Olympic park and takes in the likes of Whitehall, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly, Richmond Park and of course Buckingham Palace. This is the only time you'll be encouraged to jump a red light!
Get the whole family involved with FreeCycle

3. Something for all the family

The eight mile FreeCycle route opens from 9.00 to 16.00 and is suitable for all ages to pedal. There's the cycling show to look at and professionals to meet. And if you're in the main event your family can also track your progress through the Prudential RideLondon app.
Test your legs on Surrey's classic climbs

4. Test your legs

Ride London 100 isn't just about the concrete of the capital. Once you're in rural Surrey there's a testing 1,700m of ascent to do up the likes of Box Hill and Newlands Corner. So you better get your climb game in gear...
Brompton World Championships

5. Watch other races and enjoy family entertainment

There's no end of other things to see, including the Brompton World Championship (a wacky race with an interesting dresscode and a Le Mans-style dash), the women's Classique and the Classic for pro riders. And if RideLondon 100 is slightly too long, there's the 46-mile version to go at too.
Ride and raise funds for your favourite charity

6. Fundraise while you ride

The general ballot for entry has now closed, meaning the only means of entering is via a charity place. So you can be part of this huge cycling festival while raising loads of funds for great causes and enjoying fantastic support like this along the way. What are you waiting for?
