Box Hill and Prudential RideLondon
The Zig-Zag road at Box Hill became known worldwide as an iconic symbol of the London 2012 Olympic games. People have visited Box Hill for centuries and today it remains a year-round destination for cycling, walking, fresh air and health.
We know from our experience with the Olympics that it is possible to balance the needs of top class sport, visitor enjoyment and nature conservation. We continue to work with Natural England to protect and care for our outstanding natural habitats.

Can I watch the riders at Box Hill?
We would not encourage you to come to Box Hill. It will be difficult to access on closed roads and is a steep walk from Box Hill and Westhumble railway station. One of the best places to view the race from is Dorking, as it is easy to access via public transport and the elite cyclists will be doing multiple circuits through the area. The best action is broadcast live on TV.
