Next weekend (30 & 31 July) is RideLondon weekend.  Our Morning Service will begin at the normal time of 11:00.  Although there will be no travel difficulty for the majority of Trinity’s congregation, you may wish to plan ahead a little.  You are strongly advised to use public transport where possible.  Access to Trinity from Wimbledon station and the town centre will be easy, with stewards controlling crossing points.

Click here for details of road closures (Worple Road, Wimbledon Hill Road, Wimbledon High Street).  Parking in St George’s Road car park will be free of charge.  All the information you could possibly want (and more!) is available here.

After the Service take the opportunity to watch the cyclists as they head up Wimbledon Hill – everyone will be able to watch for free.

Tour de France champion Chris Froome will make his Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic debut and race for Team Sky on the roads of London and Surrey on Sunday (31 July).  Prudential RideLondon will be a rare chance to cheer on Britain’s greatest ever Grand Tour rider. Froome has not competed in the UK since the Grand Depart of the 2014 Tour de France, when the first three stages were held in England.

Prudential RideLondon is the largest annual cycling fundraising event on the planet – riders in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 have raised £17 million for good causes since the event began in 2013.
