Surrey Gravel Explorer 25th July

110 or 80km routes including some of the best Gravel Riding in the South East.

Great riding in the height of Summer!

An off-road experience exploring the best gravel riding in Surrey, hosted by Hidden Tracks Cycling and supported by Tropical Whole fruits and Footfactor Orthopedics.


Surrey is unusually blessed with a dense network of bridleways and gravelly tracks and an awful lot of geology, a combination that makes for some spectacular gravel riding including flowing tracks, winding trails, long gravel descents and a couple of toughies thrown into test you. I've fully tried and tested these routes, they traverse areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and are as fun to ride on a gravel bike as they are on either a  CX bike or a mountain bike.

Starting at the iconic Herne Hill Velodrome in south London there’s an option to ride the 110 km challenge with 1500 m of climbing on a route that’s at least 70% off-road, or the shorter 80km route and 840 m of climbing, the choice is yours and can be made on the day.

The finish is back at the velodrome where there’s a well-earned celebratory drink waiting for you at the bar.

Although not a race, for a bit of extra fun we’ll be timing riders and publishing the results on our website

The cost is £40 per rider and you’ll get the

·        GPX files of both routes.

·        Timing.

·        Feed station halfway.

·        Fruit bars from our partner Tropical Wholefoods.

·        A well-earned celebratory drink

·        Your name will be entered into a prize draw for a set of custom-made Orthotic insoles from Foot Factor.
