The Gravel Series North Downs

Saturday 25 June 2022 | Cranleigh Showground

Our Gravel series is designed for ALL riders to come and give some off-road riding a go. Whether you’ve done it plenty of times before, or this is your very first ride, it really doesn’t matter. 

We are heading to the North Downs where we have four routes on offer, so there really is something for everyone to come and give Gravel a go! 

We bring you a combination of flowing single track trails with some technical components and cruisy open tracks with some nice open blasts. Due to the time of the year you can hope for glorious sunshine and hopefully hard-packed dry trails.

The routes take you through the Surrey Hills AONB and showcase the area in a way you’ll never get to see from the roads. You’ll go through the heart of Winterfold Wood, Hurt Wood and Pasture Wood, all three of which make for beautifully scenic but manageable gravel riding.

As the long route clocks up just over 50km in length it also takes in over 1000m of vertical ascent. So the ride will be a challenge but it will also be one hell of an adventure.

Of course, you’ll be rewarded for all your off-roading efforts as you cross the finish line to receive a bespoke wooden finishers medal and other goodies from our partners at Jimmy’s Iced Coffee, OTE sports and Days Brewery.

This event is only suitable for Gravel, CX and Mountain Bikes.
