Wiggle Ups and Downs

Inevitably, the clue is in the name of the Wiggle Ups and Downs sportive. It’s an early-season test like few others and its fierce climbs and dramatic descents will get the heart racing no matter what. The tight and technical turns in the fast country lanes add to a great variety of climbing roads in the North and South Downs on a great test of a route.

This ride starts out in Dorking but avoids the zig-zags of Box Hill in favour of lesser-explored areas of Surrey. Sections of the 2012 Olympic road race remain all the same, as you’ll begin the first few miles by heading west across the North Downs, and it’s a climbing start as a hillside face is one of the first things you’ll have to tackle.

As the name of this event suggests, you’ll be powering down hill soon after the sharp climb, this time taking on the sharp incline on the interlude between Hound House Road and Ride Way. There’s some way to go yet – so fortunately this is the hardest of the climbing action done for a while but the terrain will continue to keep you on your toes on an uneven ride.

The route explores hidden country lanes in and around Surrey before cropping up near Godalming – you won’t enter the urban area, instead it’s time to head to the South Downs having already ridden on their North counterparts. You’ll go as far down as Wisborough Green, and into Sussex, before surfacing and edging back into Surrey, where the remainder of the testing hills present themselves near the end of the route.

Conquer these harsh Surrey Hills climbs and you’ll soon be crowned in glory crossing the finish line to receive your finisher’s medal, t-shirt and PowerBar recovery product.
