Spectator Information

The Red Hook Criterium is one of the world’s most exciting sporting events and completely free for spectators! Come early to get your hands on a free Rockstar Games cowbell so you can make a lot of noise during the races.

Merchandise Booth on site

Cowbells can be picked up from our merchandise booth located at turn #8. Most items from our online shop will be available, including cycling caps, jerseys, gloves, and shorts. Check out our online shop to see what we will have available.

Where to find the race venue

Address: Greenwich Peninsula, E Parkside, London – SE10 0BN

Tube:  North Greenwich station is on the Jubilee Line in Zones 2 and 3. And it’s right on our doorstep.

Get here from Central London in 20 minutes. Or Stratford in 10 minutes.

Bus: Get on the 108, 129, 132, 161, 188, 422, 472 or 486. They all stop at North Greenwich station.

Clippers:  Catch the MBNA Thames Clippers river bus express. Boats go direct from London Eye pier to The O2.

They leave every 30 minutes and begin three hours before an event. It takes 35 minutes. So there’s time to grab a drink and a snack on board.

Car: Inside the M25 and outside the Congestion Zone. The O2 is signposted from the M25, the A2 and A20 (from the South East), and the M11 (from the North).

Use our postcode for route planners. And if you need a junction, use Millennium Way or Edmund Halley Way.

Emirates Air Line: Enjoy 360 views of the city. Ninety metres high.

Fly the Emirates Air Line between Greenwich Peninsula and the Royal Docks. This is London’s only cable car experience. And it’s just five minutes from The O2.

Bike: The O2 is on lots of cycle routes. We’ve got 500 cycle racks in Car Parks 2, 3 and 4 and by North Greenwich station.

Consult the Transport For London website for all public transport information


You will NOT be able to take your bike on the London Underground via North Greenwich station. We recommend using the Thames Clipper if you wish to travel with your bike:

For information about bikes on public transport:
