RideLondon - Surrey Classic

The amateur race is drawing to a close and the superb Get Inspired coverage of it may have finished but there will be a live stream of the Surrey Classic 100 on the red button and this page.

That race has started - and Sir Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish are among those involved as they go in search of glory on the streets of London.

Goodbye from RideLondon

The riders are still going strong, and some of them might be at it for a while yet but there will be no more live text commentary. Thank you for your input, and remember that you can watch the RideLondon Classic race on BBC One between 18:05-18:35 BST and the web stream on this page will continue until 18:35 BST. We've had a wheelie good time.

Relief at the end

Matt Dawson on RideLondon

It's a fabulous event, it's an incredible day and having done three of them, they've all been quite different. I love seeing the diversity of people, it makes me very proud to be British. It's not just the cyclists, it's the people, the volunteers.

Dreams of Rio 2016

Craig Green is riding for fun today, but recently he's been racing to get noticed by Team GB! Craig has a condition called Poland Syndrome. After years of feeling like he had to prove that he was "normal", sometimes to his detriment, Craig started to get an appreciation for his disability. 

Watching the 2012 Paralympic Games had a humbling effect on him, and he's been cycling ever since in the hope of making Team GB in 2016. Read more of Craig's inspirational story.

The crowd were amazing. People on the street with jelly babies! I'd love to come back and do it again. There were a couple of Welsh flags along the way and a Welsh family at the finish line. You enjoy every second from start to finish. You get to ride a bike around London with no cars beeping at you!

When were you last on a bike?

Over 25,000 men and women just like you are out riding today. Some for causes that are close to their hearts, some just for the love of a good challenge. 

If RideLondon has inspired you to start cycling or to dust down your old bike and get back on the saddle  take a look at this guide  to getting into cycling.  

Practice makes perfect

Katrina and Colin are riding today in honour of their daughter who has leukaemia‎. Here they are after completing Box Hill. They've let us know that they've practiced it a few times which is why they look so relaxed!

The tough part is done now -  you can do it, not far to go.

Saturday's Festival Fun

Raising money and awareness

Riding 100 miles up and down hills isn't your everyday challenge and all of today's riders have their own reason for taking it on. For Lisa Rodrigues it is an opportunity to expand on her campaigning to stigma of mental illness.

"Cycling is not by any means a cure for depression, but it can help with prevention" says Lisa, who will have her 60th birthday in 11 days time. Read more from Lisa, and other inspirational riders out there today.
