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.
Box Hill cycling
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.
From local bike shop to online retailer, Sigma Sports continuously focus on innovation, progress and impeccable customer service for cyclists of all levels and abilities.

Times and Awards
Times and 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 our results page. 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.
What our customers say about us
I went on the Box Hill sportive. It was a very well organized event, with marshals at the busiest junctions and signage at every junction, plus feed stations. There was a proper start/finish line with chip timing. The route was downloadable in advance as a .gpx file. Very nice scenery in the surrey hills area of outstanding natural beauty.
Did the Watt Bike 40 mile Sportive today, had a lovely time. Great route on quiet roads with challenging hills, all well signposted and a lovely atmosphere. The marshalls & staff deserve a special thank you for standing out for hours in truly gruesome weather. The feed station was well stocked with all needs catered for, the bike wash stocked up with Muc-off products and the soup at the end were the icing on the cake. Southwell racecourse had brilliant facilities. Shame about the weather being freezing cold & sooo wet but totally worth it, had a lot of fun. Thank you to all involved.
well organised event. The new forest route was stunning with beautiful wild life on the way
Brilliantly organised event! I'm very new to cycling and did this event on my own but still chatted to lots of people and had a great day! Would definitely recommend UKCE to everyone! To top it off it was a lovely warm day in the beautiful New Forest! Excellent
A great day out with great staff and well planned.
Well organised, great routes and good support leads to excellence bike rides.
I would just like to say a big thank you to all the marshals and support mechanics on the Wattbike Falkirk Ride on Sunday; the guys were absolutely amazing. We had several issues en route including punctures, cramps, a crash and ever-decreasing morale, but these guys supported us right to the bitter end and got us through the epic course. I have never attended such a well-organised event; even the signage was spot on. So well done and thank you!
Just completed the Eye up in Rippon the Standard absolutely brilliant well organised and good signage. Have done a few e events this year. 2020 I will be in my 80th year so looking forward to taking part in UK Cycling Events.
Superb organisation and in ride support. The New Forest event was the best-organised event I completed in 2019
I completed the Ay Up Yorkshire this weekend. The EPIC course was my first 100mile ride, and I really enjoyed the challenge. The big climbs are close enough to home to give them another go!
Really well-organised, excellent course signs, and great to see medical support available out one the course.😀👍
