RideLondon 2018: Cyclists brave wind and rain for 100-mile ride as ‘stewards fill potholes on route’

Bangla sanglap desk: Thousands of cyclists today braved wet and windy weather to take part in a 100-mile bike ride on the second day of the annual Prudential RideLondon festival.
Londoners – undeterred by the poor weather – took to the streets to cheer riders as they battled the rain on the route from London to Surrey.
The two-day festival, now in its sixth year, is aimed at encouraging more healthy and active travel.
Cyclists set out from Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park at 5.45am on Sunday, following the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 route through the capital and into Surrey’s countryside.
But the event was blighted by downpours after thunderstorms on Friday brought the UK heatwave to a dramatic end.
The bad weather caused some issues on the country roads as stewards were forced to fill in slippery potholes for the riders, footage from the event showed.
Surrey Live journalist Tom Smurthwaite shared a clip on Twitter, in which stewards are seen directing cyclists away from potholes before filling them in using temporary materials.
The 100-mile route was made famous by the world’s best cyclists at the London 2012 Olympics.
The challenging event sees cyclists tackle leg-testing climbs into the south east county, before finishing on The Mall in central London.
