Due to the high volume of road closures in and around London and Surrey there are designated park and ride car parks that cyclists will have to use to access the city. Garmin are providing a bespoke point of interest download for the park and ride car parks and cycle routes to and from the start and finish lines. The POI's and cycle routes will be available to download from the Garmin website from July.

Garmin are offering their cycling Twitter followers the chance to be one of the four cyclists who will represent Team Garmin in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 business relay. Each rider will ride 25 miles and receive a full Garmin Sharp cycling kit. Garmin's Twitter followers will have until 5th July 2013 to tell Garmin why they should represent Garmin in 140 characters or less. The four winners will be announced on 8th July.
