We've charted the finish times of the 15,000-plus cyclists in this year's Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100. Do you want to ride 100 miles in next year's event?

Did you ride in this year's RideLondon-Surrey 100? Cheer on the cyclists? Just curious about what the range of finishing times are for the more than 15,000 riders? Interested in joining our team for next year's RideLondon-Surrey 100?

Based on finishing times provided on the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 website, we compiled a chart that tallies, by hour and minute, riders' finishing times.

What the times show

For clarity, we rounded all times up to the next minute. For example, my finishing time was 7:21:16 but it was rounded up to 7:22 for the chart below.

According to the finishing times:

  • 6:12 is the average time
  • 6:04 is the mean

What do you think of the chart? (You can find a bigger version of the chart on the Datawrapper website.)
