Set around one of the most popular cycling climbs in the South East of England, the Sigma Sports Box Hill Original is the sportive that should be on every rider’s calendar. Ranging from 30 miles up to the big 100, these routes all take in parts of the London Olympic road cycling race in 2012 that saw Mark Cavendish and Bradley Wiggins tackle as they fought for gold.
Taking place towards the end of the season, completing this road sportive is a perfect goal to aim for before easing off over the winter.
Located in Dorking, Surrey, Box Hill has become a stalwart of cycling hill climbs in the South East. It’s sloping zig-zagging route takes riders from base to peak after just 2.5km but with a steady 5% average gradient, it’s not too severe that riders will struggle but it's challenging enough that you won’t be left wanting more. The climb maxes out at 8% gradient for a brief moment but levels out as riders climb to a fantastic vantage point of the surrounding Surrey Hills.
Box Hill’s proximity to London has made it a number one choice for riders based in the capital and we’re celebrating its place in the Parcours of cycling in the South East of Britain.
