The BBC has been the host broadcaster of RideLondon since its inception in 2013. The event, the world’s greatest festival of cycling, is the most successful legacy event from the 2012 London Olympic Games, with more than 500,000 participants having taken part since 2013, including more than 150,000 new or lapsed cyclists. It has also raised more than £83 million for charity.
Whisper TV will be producing the coverage of Ford RideLondon and the event will also be broadcast live across Europe, Asia and North America on Eurosport/Discovery and the Global Cycling Network, across South Africa and sub-Saharan Africa on SuperSport and on the Olympic Channel for the rest of the world.
