Things you should know...

  • The Olympic programme includes two Road Cycling events for men and women, which take place on roads in Surrey. The men's Cycling Road Race will take place on Saturday 28 July, with the women's held on Sunday 29 July.
  • Both events will begin on The Mall, before the riders head south-west through the city. They will then cross the Thames at Putney Bridge and continue out through Richmond Park and past Hampton Court Palace.
  • The Surrey section of the course passes through Walton on Thames, Weybridge and Dorking, then incorporates several circuits of a loop around Box Hill (nine for the men's Road Race, two loops for the women's equivalent), before the riders head north through Leatherhead, Esher, Kingston, Richmond Park and back to The Mall.
  • For the safety of athletes and spectators, there will be road restrictions and closures in the area hours before events begin until a few hours after events finish. This may also affect access to rail and Tube stations and bus stops and routes in the area.
  • If you are travelling into London, make sure you check our London travel information.
  • We want to give you as much information as possible, as early as possible. However, not all the finer details about transport operations around road events are available yet, such as information about road closures or restrictions to parking and road access. This is because some of the plans for the Games are still being finalised. The map on this page will be updated as soon as we have more detailed information available.
