Our Surrey Hills Classic event is just that, an absolute CLASSIC! With the Long and Middle routes taking in Leith Hill - the highest point in Southern England at 294m - followed by a ride around the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty for those tackling the Long route, your legs will certainly be ready for that finish line beer.
Our Classic Series is designed with all riders in mind. With four routes to choose from and nothing too technical, we would love to see as many riders joining us for one of our Classic events as possible.
The Rook route at just over 25km and 235m of vertical ascent will give even the newest rider the opportunity to experience the Surrey Hills in all their glory. Regardless of the route, you choose you’ll weave and wind through an amazing variety of countryside, from the rolling chalk downs and flower-rich grasslands to the acid heaths and woodlands.
Of course, you’ll be rewarded for all your efforts as you cross the finish line to receive a finishers medal, beer from Freedom Brewery and other goodies from our partners at Jimmy’s Iced Coffee and OTE sports.
We’re so excited to be returning to the Surrey Hills for another year as it’s a firm favourite amongst the UK Cycling Event riders, due to it being a route that is accessible for many with the added bonus of ticking off famous climbs. We hope you are able to join us and fingers crossed it won’t be as wet as our 2020 event!
Please note that, due to the ongoing pandemic and restrictions, we are unable to ride up Box Hill for this event.
