RideLondon has no future in Surrey after 2021, says council

The 2021 event has already been scaled back, with the 100-mile sportive and men's WorldTour race both scrapped

Surrey County Council will withdraw their support for RideLondon after 2021 following complaints from residents of the disruption caused by the event.

The public consultation should see the disappearance of the county from the event after next year's edition, which already only features four miles of Surrey roads. The 2021 event has also been significantly scaled back, with no 100-mile sportive or men's WorldTour race.

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.
