Before the start of the mass event this morning, there were was a moving rendition of the national anthem in tribute to the late Queen Elizabeth II, who died last month.
After the tribute, the elite men and mass group were started by England Lionesses Leah Williamson, Ellen White and Jill Scott.
Many of those who participate will do so for charity, often with moving personal stories of why they are testing their bodies after spending months or even years preparing for the big event.
As competitors pass the crowds, they will also see the capital’s iconic landmarks including Tower Bridge, Canary Wharf, the London Eye, Westminster and of course Buckingham Palace down the straight.
Equally iconic are the now-famous disguises that some riders will wear when taking part, with giant sunflowers, Minions and even Big Ben’s Elizabeth Tower all ready to catch the eye as they ride the course.
Wheelchair racing saw early success for the Brits as David Weir and Eden Rainbow-Cooper in the men’s and women’s races respectively.

It comes after Kate – who rose to fame as the winner of Channel 4’s third series of Big Brother in 2020 – insisted that ‘millennial minds will be blown’ if they were to watch the broadcast today amid plans for the much-loved reality series to make a return to ITV2.
Radio host Kate fondly recalled her days in the famed reality TV house, saying contestants were doused with as much booze as they wanted, prompting plenty of loud and raunchy behavior, which would totally shock Love Island viewers today.
She told The Sun: “I always knew he would return, and I’m so excited for his return to see the reaction from Millennials.” There is now this whole new generation of children who are going to watch it for the first time…
“It was in an era of reality TV where producers weren’t rationing booze because there weren’t serious incidents involving calling the police!”
She added: “With alcohol comes drinking games. There was so much bottle spin, I kissed everyone – I think.

Created by John de Mol and premiered in the Netherlands, Big Brother hit UK screens in 2000.
Craig Phillips won the first season with Brian Dowling triumphing over the second, before Kate became the first female winner of the third series in 2002.
A number of UK spin-offs have been created, including Teen Big Brother, Ultimate Big Brother and the popular Celebrity Big Brother.
In 2011, the program moved from Channel 4 to Channel 5, but was eventually canceled in 2018 after the 19th series, three years after Love Island – popular with today’s younger generation – arrived on ITV2.
Kate claims Big Brother bosses told them to be careful of any sexual interactions they had in the house, insisting they had to hide their actions.
But she added: “By series six, nobody cared at all and it was like ‘If they have sex, then they have sex’, and they didn’t care…
“It was a popularity contest, so any romance was a nice touch.” But there was no sex for me.
Big Brother’s highly anticipated return was confirmed by ITV bosses earlier this month.
The new UK home of the original reality TV juggernaut has been announced as ITV2 and ITVX, with a series set to air next year.
A carefully selected cast of housemates from all walks of life will take up residence in Britain’s most famous TV house for up to six weeks, with cameras capturing their every move.
The house will receive a contemporary new look for the reimagining of the iconic series.
It is hoped that the audience will be gripped as the contestants take part in entertaining tasks, tense nominations and live evictions.
The fate of the housemates will once again be in the hands of the general British public as they vote throughout the series, ultimately determining who walks away with a huge cash prize and is crowned the winner.
