The Ride London Classique is set to return to the Maldon District on Saturday, May 25.

The 143km race, featuring some of the world's best women cyclists, will start in Maldon, with the cyclists then embarking on a journey around Heybridge, Tollesbury, Birch Green, Tiptree, Witham, Terling, Hatfield Peveril, and Little Baddow, before returning to Maldon for the finish. 

The exhilarating race begins in Promenade Park and finishes on the High Street, similarly to the 2022 and 2023 races.

In 2023, the race was popular with spectators who crowded along the High Street to cheer-on competitors.

However, a number of temporary road closures mean the race can be challenging for Maldon motorists.

The temporary road closures mean that some roads around Maldon will be closed just ahead of the first riders' arrival and just after the last rider passes through.

However, Fullbridge, Market Hill and Upper Highstreet will be closed from 04:00am-20:00pm to allow for preparation and removal of the finish area. 

Pedestrian access is available at all times and businesses will be open. 

Other notable closures include: 

  • Maldon bypass and London Road: Both roads will be closed between 12:00 and 15:30.
  • Lower High Street and Mill Road: The race starts in Promenade Park at 11:00/ Lower High Street and Mill Road will be closed between 10:45 and 11:15
  • Spital Road: This road will be closed from 14:00-15:30
  • The Causeway, The Street and Goldhanger Road: These roads will be closed 10:30-11:30.
  • Witham Road, Maldon Road, Langford Road and the Heybridge Approach: Roads will be closed from 12:30-14:30
