The RideLondon route has been unveiled at a press conference with Boris Johnson this morning.
It's a chance for South West Londoners to relive the Olympics.
Starting in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, the routes pass many of London's iconic landmarks before passing over Chiswick Bridge, along Clifford Avenue coming into East Sheen.
After passing through North Surrey, the cyclists will then pass through Kingston and head into Wimbledon via the A309.
They'll head through Worple Road and past Wimbledon Commmon, before embarking for the final leg of the route in Putney.
It will then return to finish in the heart of the capital on The Mall in true Olympic style.
The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, said: "Following the superhuman efforts of our Team GB cyclists last year, thousands of cycling enthusiasts, both experienced and amateur, riding a fantastic route through the streets of our fine city is surely a fitting legacy."
