This is a classic Sunday “club run” route taking in three main climbs through the picturesque, sweeping roads of Surrey.
Today you’ll start with a warm-up climb up Box Hill’s famous Zig Zag Road (OC-14). There’ll be no stopping at the National Trust Café today as you ride over Ranmore Common to Shere, and past another great Sunday ride café stop (The Dabbling Duck) before the road climbs once again up Leith Hill (OC-17).
The last climb of the day is the toughest – White Down Lane (OC-18). Save your legs for the main climb which starts after the railway bridge, where the narrow road pitches to above 18%. The perfect place to drop your clubmates and earn post-ride bragging rights!
From here it’s mostly downhill as you flush the lactic acid out of well-spent legs on the return journey back to Ryka's cafe. See you again at the same time next week!
