If you love riding through the countryside, passing winding streams of crystal clear water, through cosy villages and stunning woodland, then we’ve got two looped routes for you to enjoy.
Sweet Sixteen - 16 mile route
Start time: 09:30
This is a lovely route through the local hills and valleys. It’s perfect for families with younger kids who might find the longer routes too daunting. But it’s not all plain sailing because there’s 1,800 feet of climbing to take on. Luckily we’ve got two refreshment points to keep you and your bikes well oiled.
The Classic - 25 mile route
Start time: 09:00
This is our original route and still our favourite. It features 1,800 feet of climbing up challenging but doable hills, three refreshment points and loads of fabulous sites to enjoy, up and over the Surrey and Hampshire hills.
2 family routes, tons of extras.
The routes are undoubtedly the main attractions, but the day is filled with fun for riders and non-riders alike. Enjoy all this too:
- Children under 16 ride Free
- Free medals
- Free parking
- Velo Village at The Maltings, including competitions, films and cycle jumble.
- Plus a hill climb and a closed-road crit in the evening.
Keeping you safe and sound
All riders must wear a helmet. No quibbles. No exceptions. Even Bradley Wiggins will have to wear one if he comes along. (You’re more than welcome, Sir.)
All our routes are fully signed and marshalled to stop you getting lost, or helping out of you’ve got a problem. We’ve also chosen courses away from the busier roads to keep you safe and fume free. We’ll also have bike mechanics on hand to help with any last minute maintenance.
