Cycling Weekly Box Hill Original

Our iconic Cycling Weekly Box Hill Original is one that should be on every sportive rider’s calendar. Set in what is rapidly becoming one of the most popular cycling areas in the country, this day’s riding takes in the best Surrey can offer. Coming towards the end of the season, this is a great chance to get a long ride in before a well-deserved break and the winter training starts all over again.

Including some of the roads of the 2012 Olympic road race, in particular the famous zig-zags of Box Hill itself, everyday riders can follow in the pedal strokes of the pros. The route is varied, with challenging – but rideable – climbs, stunning scenery and winding lanes.

Based in the heart of this area of outstanding natural beauty the Epic route flows out of Surrey and into scenic Sussex taking in some of the best of the surrounding countryside, passing through quiet villages and winding country lanes.

After a rolling start, all courses face some well-known climbs, for epic riders there are 6 ascents of note within the second half of the course. Epic and Standard riders get to experience the changing topography of the course as they test their legs on the popular climb of Leith Hill before relaxing across Abinger Common. All courses rejoin to tackle the fearsome Whitedowns, which tops out at almost 20% in places, so the summit is a welcome reward. Then all three routes head over to tackle the now famous zig zag ascent of Box Hill.

With three famous ascents under your belt, you are onto the final element of the course, but there are still some challenges ahead so make sure you keep stocked up through your ride at the PowerBar feed stations.

Every route on this event climb over 3500 feet, with the Epic clearing 6600 feet over its 104 miles.

Despite the climbs, all three routes are rideable for those of a reasonable fitness level. This is a great end of season leg tester that takes riders through quiet lanes and on world famous roads.

Key Information

Online pre-entry

Online pre-entry is the easiest way of entering and saves £5.00 per person vs. entering on the day. Online pre-entry will save you time on the day of the event allowing you to simply pick up your registration pack from the Pre entered registration points. Please note: If an event reaches its capacity we will have to close the event to riders wanting to enter on the day. It is therefore best to pre enter online to avoid disappointment!

On the day entry

On the day entries are available at all our events as long as the event has not sold out prior to the event day. On the day entries are subject to an additional £5.00 per person surcharge. Payment can be made with cash or cheque. You can fill out an entry form when you arrive at the event. One entry form must be completed per person. Wiggle Customers will not be able to receive any loyalty discounts on the day.

Awards

Although all our rides are non competitive events (i.e. not races), most people still like to know how well they've done. With this in mind we will time each participants ride. When you complete your ride your time will be calculated and these timings, along with the timing Award you achieved, will be displayed on the Website. Each rider will receive a timing award of either; bronze, silver or gold, depending on their average speed. Of course, some riders aren't bothered about all these awards and just cycle for the experience and stunning scenery.
