The 2021 RideLondon festival has been cancelled, and organisers will now offer a virtual event this year before focusing on bringing it back in 2022.

The 2021 edition had already been significantly scaled back, with no 100-mile sportive or men's WorldTour race, after the 2020 event was also called off because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.

Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).

I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
