Long Route

An epic 93km circuit in Surrey taking in both the hills and flatter parts of the county.

Starting in Peaslake, we have a couple of climbs in the Surrey Hills before heading to  a fast section to Dunsfold and a section in the commons and woodlands. The last 20km home are back into rolling terrain back in the hills on some smooth gravel tracks.

Percentage of Route Off Road: 60%







Medium Route

The medium route splits from the long route taking the Downs Link and avoiding nearly 30km of rolling terrain to the west of the route.

The final 20km contains most of the climbing before a fast descent back to the ride village for a well earned beer.

Percentage of Route Off Road: 70%







Short Route

The short route follows the medium for the majority of the day but cuts off a section in the middle and near the end to make this nearly 20km shorter. With some nice variety on the off road sections & very little climbing, this is ideal for riders of all abilities.

Percentage of Route Off Road: 55%
