Work to transform The Mall from being a famous London street to iconic cycling setting ahead of this weekend’s Prudential RideLondon is well underway.
Crews arrived on site at 6.30 this morning, with the work likely to be completed this evening.
Cycling Weekly visited the site this afternoon, and found the finish line and village area for finishers of the RideLondon 100 sportive taking shape nicely.
Two big screens were on spotted on site, which will enable spectators to keep up-to-date with this weekend’s action.
The Mall will be used on tomorrow morning’s family-friendly FreeCycle and the Grand Prix criterium races in addition to being the finish location for Sunday’s 100 and Classic events.
