Family entertainment for bike festival
Love Wimbledon is hosting a Street Party on Sunday August 4 to celebrate RideLondon coming through the town centre and to cheer on the brave cyclists.
The celebrations will be taking place on Wimbledon Hill Road between the Worple Road junction and St Georges Road junction from midday.
Worple Road and part of Wimbledon Hill Road will be closed from 7am to 7pm to vehicles.
Thanks to Elys Shopping and Gina Conway Aveda Salon and Spa, there will be lots of fun activities planned to keep the family entertained. It will include live musical performances and shows from 'Bicycle Ballet' - an exciting new dance venture.
