Sunday, August 4, 2013 will see the the RideLondon-Surrey 100 come to central London. This event will cause significant problems for those travelling to places such as Heathrow as the Hammersmith flyover is being used for the event.
Cllr Victoria Brocklebank-Fowler, cabinet member for transport and technical services at Hammersmith and Fulham Council, said:
"The sheer number of cyclists taking part, together with the fact that Hammersmith Flyover is part of the route means that this event will have a wider impact than last year's Olympic races.
"If you are planning to fly from Heathrow or to hold a wedding or family celebration, it is worth bearing in mind now that travelling in the borough will be greatly restricted on Sunday, August 4."

The event will be sponsored by Prudential, Britain's largest insurance group.
