Ride London rankings and average times: find out how your time compares to everyone else’s

Ok, so you’ve got your time from the official results site, had a look at your mates’ times and those of your favourite celebrities… now you can’t help wondering – ‘how did I did I do compared to everyone else?’ At least, that’s what we were thinking after comparing times at the Speak Media studio…

UPDATE! CLICK HERE TO SEE OUR 2014 PRUDENTIAL RIDE LONDON RIDER RANKINGS !!!

As usual for a ‘sportive’ event, the organisers aren’t that keen on releasing rider times in ‘ranked’ order (it’s not a race, after all) – instead you get an alphabetically-organised index. But we didn’t let that stop us – we just got our best data-crunchers on the case, and in the time it takes Mark Cavendish to sprint 500 metres, out popped a neatly formatted spreadsheet full of interesting insights.

So here, to satisfy your curiousity, are the headline facts and figures from the UK’s biggest ever sportive (some 16,000 riders on the day) – the inaugural Prudential Ride London-Surrey 100.

  1. Puzzled to find my time is wrong on your spreadsheet – a couple of minutes quicker – and my rank more than 100 places higher. Pity to see these errors which undermine confidence in this piece.

    1. Hi Mark – so we made you faster with our electronic-EPO? should be over the moon! Seriously though, as stated above, these are from the (official) published

        provisional

      results and just intended as a rough guide and a bit of fun, it’s not a real race so afraid we won’t be able to call for a commissaire’s enquiry. However, if you want us to look into it for you, feel free to email enquiries@speakmedia.co.uk with your name and time (and online source for the time) – if an updated set of timings has been published, we may even re-run our special software to generate a new rankings list (no promises though!).

    1. Hi John

      we just searched the men’s rankings for ‘Barnes’ and found the one with your number, you finished in 1511th position!

      details copied here:

  2. Interesting that so many mens names appear in the womens rankings. Are men applying into the ballot as women to increase their chances of getting a place?

    1. good question – we noticed that. could be the provisional results getting mixed up, or as you say something more deliberate… one the organisers will no doubt be looking to tighten up on in 2014!

  3. Hi, I was wondering if you have any age related times. My sponsorship money would be greatly enhanced if I were to be in the top 10 pensioners home and substantially increased if I were to be the first pensioner home. My name is Jack Roberts, I am 69 years old and my official time was 5 hours 8 minutes 56 seconds although you have me quicker at 5-32-? If your organisation can find this information I will be incredibly impressed.

    1. Hi Jack

      Afraid we don’t have rankings by age – our rankings are based on the finishing times published by the organisers, which don’t include rider ages.

      However I can confirm that the time we have listed on our spreadsheet is the same as your official time – i.e. 5:08:56 – which is a great time and places you 2,480th overall (men’s) – and only a smidgen outside the top 20% in terms of men’s times!

      thanks and good luck with your sponsorship – might be worth approaching Prudential Ride London to see if they can give you the information you’re seeking (I’m sure they will be able to), especially as it could have such an impact on your fundraising. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if you’re somewhere near the top for your age group. First pensioner home – that would be something!

      1. Thanks George, I did contact them but as of yet 4 weeks, there is no response although I have been told that the information is there but they will not release it as they say it was not a race. But they report that the first person home won the race. So it seems it is a race depending on who you are. Pensioners Racing whatever next? Thanks once again, Jack.

  4. This is such great information! I was in the top 10% of ladies with an 11 month old baby at the time of riding! Made all those 5am alarm calls to ride very worthwhile. Are you doing the same for the 2014 event?

      1. Hi Ben,

        Thanks for asking – if you subscribe to our blog you’ll be notified the instant the post goes live! And you’ll also get other cycling-related goodies from time to time. Alternatively follow our Twitter feed and you’ll get updates on Ride London rankings: @SpeakMedia_

  5. Can your number crunchers provide these stats with age group too? For anally retentive middle aged men like myself, comparison against your peers is essential! I’ve worked out that I’m in the “26th percentile” for all males and would like to see how I did against other 45 – 50 year olds, once the young whippersnappers have been excluded!
