The third Prudential RideLondon took place on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd August 2015. 86259 was unfortunately unable to bring staff and executives from Edinburgh Waverley, as it had done in 2013 and 2014, due to the urgent repairs discussed elsewhere in this site.

Accordingly this page is not railway-orientated but my webmaster has 'trolled' the internet for images of the cycling aspect of the weekend as well as the naked cycling event which is deliberately timed to coincide with it. The captions are his and the collection of images may be seen here

100,000 registrations for the 2015 ride were taken (each year it has increased in size) and a map of the competition cycling route is shown below.

There will be a similar event next year and I am pretty certain that 86259 will return to hauling the private trains laid on by The Prudential.
