Some local roads will be closed in and around the district for stage 2 of the RideLondon Classique on Saturday 28 May.
On Sunday 29 May, there will be more than 100 miles of road closures for the mass participation ride across London and Essex. Your journey could still be affected even if roads near your home or business are not shut.
Direct access to Stansted Airport will not be affected but you may need to plan alternative routes as some of the surrounding roads will be unavailable.
Due to the event road closures, some bus services will be diverted, suspended, or terminated before their usual destinations and some stops may also be temporarily relocated.
For up-to-date bus travel information visit the Essex Highways website.
Parts of London are estimated to be busier during the RideLondon events which may mean the tube, buses and trains are more crowded. There is also planned engineering works across the Transport for London network in May which may affect your journey to and from the city.

Final parking details are still being agreed but access to some local public car parks will be limited.
Motorists are advised to avoid Epping where possible. Epping High Street and surrounding roads will be affected by the women’s Classique professional tour race on Saturday and the mass-participation charity ride on Sunday.
There will be limited parking in Epping’s pay and display carparks. Some alternative parking has been agreed with St Margaret’s Hospital for motorists who usually park in Epping on Saturday. RideLondon is also approaching Epping Town Council to see if additional parking can be provided at Stonnards Hill.
All motorists are advised to check the road closures before planning their journeys and to find alternative routes or public transport where possible.
