Olympic Road Race – update

The County Council have planned some drop-in sessions to provide residents and businesses with an opportunity to ask questions and find out more about the Olympic Cycle Road Race that is coming to Mole Valley on the 28th and 29th July 2012 and more immediately about the test event known as the London-Surrey Cycle Classic which will take place on Sunday 14th August 2011.
The first of these sessions is planned for next week so I thought I would give you all the ‘heads up’. The actual schedule is as follows:
23 June 3pm to 8pm             Mickleham Village Hall
28 June 2pm to 8pm             Headley Village Hall
30 June 3pm to 9pm             Box Hill Village Hall
12 July 3pm to 8pm              Dorking Halls, Masonic Room
29 July 3pm to 8pm              Park House, Leatherhead
I understand from County that a representative from them will attend along with a member of the Surrey Highways team. Someone from the London 2012 Organising Committee for the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) will also attend and I, or one of my team, will be there too.
It is expected that a press release will go out about this on Monday but I felt it important to notify you before the weekend so you could have the chance to let as many of your residents know as you can.
Whilst writing to you, I can also let you know that a cycling organisation has set up a website called ‘ridetheroute.com’. They are encouraging cyclists to sign up to ride the Olympic cycle route on 7th August 2011. At present I don’t know any more about this but we are investigating. I also understand that Surrey Police are aware of this event.
Kind regards
