The Surrey Hills Classic

Saturday 7 May 2022 | Cranleigh Showground

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 and up Box Hill for those tackling the Long route. Your legs will certainly be ready for that finish line beer. 

The Short route at just over 50km and 500m 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 heaths and woodlands.

Of course you’ll be rewarded with a medal, a cold beer from Days and other goodies from Jimmy's and OTE to celebrate your accomplishment as you cross the finish line. And just because you've finished the ride, that doesn't mean you have to go home. Why not stay on in our rider’s village for some pizza and post-ride banter?

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.

There are certainly some big hills which also means long descents. Amongst the climbs there are some fast flat sections to keep your leg moving.
