SGC Security Services have once again received confirmation from our client that they would like SGC Security to provide traffic management stewards, door supervisors, traffic management supervisors, event manager, Safety Officers and CSAS staff to RideLondon 2017.
In 2015 SGC Security were approached by the RideLondon event organisers following a recommendation from one of our other clients that we provide event crowd management and security staff to. From this with only a couple of months preparation SGC were able to successfully provide over 150 event staff to a specified part of the world-renowned RideLondon cycle event. With 2 major Vehicle Crossing Points + 3 minor Vehicle Crossing Points plus over 9000 landlocked residents due to the road closures, SGC Security successfully completed the event with the event passing through without any incidents and much smoother than the previous supplier!
SGC were further approached in 2016 and again with over 180 staff deployed and (with the rain holding off!) it was yet another successful event. We now have another World Stage event firmly secured in our Event Calendar. Well done to the SGC Security Operations Team and event staff for the past 2 years…here’s to a successful hatrick!! And thank you RideLondon to choosing SGC Security Services as a supplier once again.
RideLondon is a 3 day event that is sponsored by Prudential from 28th July – 30th July. The event kicks off with a series of events for the RideLondon Grand Prix on the Friday. This is followed by a FreeCycle on Saturday 29th July where many of London’s roads are close to allow cyclists the freedom and safety to cycle passed some of London’s iconic venues where the festival zones will be set up for families and cycling enthusiasts can cycle. The seven official Festival Zones include Southbank, Guildhall Yard, Leadenhall Market, St Paul’s Churchyard, Aldwych, Lincoln’s Inn Fields and Green Park.
The main event is on the Sunday where over tens of thousands of cyclists start either their 100 mile or 46 mile bike ride from London’s Olympic Park, through London to Surrey and back through London finishing at The Mall.
