Surrey Gravel Explorer
Surrey Gravel Explorer 25th July
110 or 80km routes including some of the best Gravel Riding in the South East.
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
