Ride Overview

The Pearson Inside Out Gravel Series is back this June for another cracking South London Loop. Book your spot at the bottom of the page for £20, 100% of entry fees go to our two excellent mental health charities. The object of the Pearson Inside Out Gravel Series is to introduce and enjoy outstanding gravel riding, which exists in and around London! We also aim to highlight the benefits of cycling to our mental wellbeing. Riding on gravel helps to immerse riders amongst natural environments, into cleaner air and on to quieter byways, providing great headspace and a wealth of comradery between fellow riders.

The Route

East Sheen: 52km, 310m

Starting from Pearson Cycles in East Sheen, this circular route heads south through the parks and onto the main off road sections of the route including Esher Common, Ashtead & Epsom Common before heading home along the river & parks. The route is not marked and for those who are not digital yet, we will be supplying the chance when entering online for the first 40 riders to borrow a new Wahoo GPS for the ride. Riders who are not equipped with the digital route will be unable to follow the course.

Physical Difficulty: 1/5
