“Hands down the best off road sportive I’ve done. Trails I simply didn’t know existed so close to South London. Challenging for seasoned riders but accessible for those new to the discipline. See you there again next year!” 

James K. London.

        A superb day out!

        An excellent day's riding! Charlie managed to put together a route that was mostly off-road, entirely on legal trails, of just over 100km, leaving from and returning to Herne Hill Velodrome.
        It helped that the weather was decent and the trails were nice and dry, but this route would still be fun in soggy conditions (just a bit slower).
        I discovered cut-throughs, byways and unknown bridleways I'll definitely be using in future, and there was plenty of fast, flowing singletrack and forest trails too. The support was great, coffee and croissants to start the day, probably the best-equipped mid-ride snack table I've ever seen, and pizza and beer at the Velodrome at the end!
        A really lovely day out, I'll be looking out for this next year.
