Cycling Weekly Box Hill Original Sportive

Cycling Weekly Box Hill Original Sportive

Sunday 8th October 2017 - Cranleigh Showground, Bookhurst Road, Cranleigh, Surrey, GU6 7DW

Set around one of the most popular cycling climbs in the South East, Cycling Weekly 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 race 2012 that saw Mark Cavendish and Bradley Wiggins tackle as they fought for gold.

Taking place towards the end of the season, this 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 of England. 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 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 it’s place in the parcours of cycling in the South East of Britain.

Key Information

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.
