The Surrey Hills AONB provides the backdrop to 3 classic mountain bike routes. Testing climbs, exhilarating descents and spectacular views await as you head north from Cranleigh through ancient woodland to Shere where the short route loops along the valley to Abinger.
Standard and Epic riders will enjoy the delightful Effingham Forest and Mountain Wood single-track pausing at White Down for a refuel. Polesden Lacey Estate provides some challenging terrain for the Epic riders followed by fabulous views across to Box Hill high above the Denbies Vineyard.
Classic Surrey Hills MTB trails lead south through Abinger and Holmbury back to Cranleigh for a well-deserved medal for finishers.

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.
SportivePhoto will be taking pictures of all riders at this event. Please visit www.sportivephoto.com once you have taken part in the event to view your photos!
