Prudential RideLondon 2015: Official Seeding Event for the Cape Town Cycle Tour 2016

While most of the Cape Town Cycle Tour seeding events are based in South Africa, there are 2 options available for those who live outside the country, the Nedbank Cycle Challenge in Namibia, and the Prudential RideLondon Festival of Cycling, which is set to take part in the UK’s capital city on 1st and 2nd August 2015.

Referred to as “the world’s greatest festival of cycling”, the Prudential RideLondon attracts some 95,000 cyclists each year, who head to London to take part of one of the five different events staged over 2 days.

International Entries Cape Town Cycle Tour

On Saturday 1st August, spectators can expect a cycling extravaganza with the Prudential RideLondon Grand Prix, a series of criterium races for professional women cyclists and youths that are set to become our future Olympic champions.  The 10th Brompton World Championship will take place on Saturday too, a ‘Le-Mans’ style mass start of over 500 smartly-dressed cyclists, who have to unfold their bikes at the start line and dress in their very best – no cycling shorts allowed!

If you want to join in the fun, there is still time to enter the Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle Event, which is open to everyone and anyone with a bike! A fun ride through the traffic-free city, it passes iconic landmarks such as Buckingham Palace and the Tower of London.

Three further events will take place on Sunday, 2nd August, the Handcycle Classic with 30 hand-cyclists racing across the city from Kingston upon Thames to The Mall, the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic, a 100 mile sportive reserved for 150 of the world’s top cyclists, and the hugely popular RideLondon-Surrey 100 for amateurs.

Such is the demand for the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 race that entries are made by ballot, so if you haven’t got your entry by now – you will have to be a spectator, and cycle the Cape Town Cycle Tour as a regular international entrant – just like the rest of us!

    Hi, I have done the 2015 Prudential Ride London specifically for improving my seeding in the 2016 Cape Town Cycle Tour.

    I have however had no success in translating my results into an improved seeding & have contacted various people with no success. Could you please advise how I should proceed or whom to contact to update my seeding?

    Thanks in advance

      Hi Arun, thank you for your message.

      The only way you can improve your seeding is by contacting the race office.
      Telephone: 0027 (0) 87 820 4300

      You need to provide them with details of your most recent events, and then they will determine if you qualify for better seeding. The only thing I can recommend is that you be persistent and try to speak to the same person every time you call or email. Good Luck! 🙂
