Entry to Prudential Ride London-Surrey race shuts after "overwhelming" response
Registration for the 2014 Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 has already closed after more than 80,000 people registered in less than four weeks.
Next year's event takes place on Sunday, August 10, as part of the Mayor of London’s annual festival of cycling.
The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, said: "An eclectic cast of cyclists has registered to enter next year's Prudential RideLondon festival, which promises to be bigger and better than ever.
"London will once again be transformed as tens of thousands of people test their two-wheeled mettle on the capital's streets."
More than 15,000 amateur riders finished the event this summer after cycling 100 miles from Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, out into the Surrey before returning to The Mall.
Applicants will hear in February if they have been allocated a place through the ballot.
