    Tonight's Classique event boasts the strongest ever field assembled for a women's one-day race in Great Britain as the world's top 20 teams battle it out through the streets of central London. 

    The new 5.5km circuit takes in many of the capital's most iconic landmarks including Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, the Strand and Trafalgar Square before it concludes on the Mall.

    For the first time ever in women's cycling, the prize money on offer is the highest ever for a women's one-day race, matching that of Sunday's men's race.

    Notable competitors include Giorgia Bronzini and Olympic gold medallist Dani King who are both part of British team Wiggle High5. 

    Manon Lloyd, double European junior champion in 2014, is riding for Team GB.

    Coverage starts on BBC Two at 18:00 BST.

    A steep hill can seem like a daunting task for a budding cyclist, and if you try and go up hell for leather they can be difficult. 

    That's why it's important to take your time, and enjoy the inevitable descent on the other side!

    Louise Ride London

    Louise is taking part in her first 100 mile race to raise money for the National Autistic Society after her son Dominic was diagnosed with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) aged four.  

    "If you had told me 10 years ago that Dom would pass five GSCEs I would have laughed in your face," she said.

    "He is a remarkable young man."

    "The NAS has given us so much help and support over the years, so in my slightly emotional state I signed up for the ride. I might be regretting that now but I am training hard. 

    "There is much hard work ahead but, with the help and support of my family, I am determined to make it on the day!"

    Kevin Ride London

    Kevin decided to take up cycling to get fit after being diagnosed with stage three melanoma, a form of skin cancer, in 2015.  

    "I've really got the bug for cycling," he said.

    "I wanted to show my appreciation to all the wonderful staff at the Royal Marsden who I believe not only saved my life but helped me to improve my life more than I could have ever expected.  

    "I am very proud to be able to ride as a year ago I wasn't sure where I would be."
