Event Venue: Dunsfold Aerodrome, Stovolds Hill, Cranleigh, Surrey GU6 8TB

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.

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

  • Well organised, great routes and good support leads to excellence bike rides.

  • Had one amazing experience. My first 100 miles on the bike in amazing route, friendly staff. Really recommend UK cycling events. Can not wait for the next one.

  • 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.

  • A great day out with great staff and well planned.

  • 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!
