Biggin Hill Road Ride:
Sunday 30th September 2012
Pre-entries now closed, to enter on the day:
A great weekend of riding to escape the 'big smoke' if your down south, our off-road rides quickly reach the local Bridleways and set our sights on the North Downs. Our Sportive ride guides you through pretty villages, country lanes and the iconic Titsey Hill climb to finish.
Heading south from the event venue it’s a gentle warm-up climb on the North Downs, before dropping into a long, steep descent into Oxted. We then weave about the country lanes in the shadow of the Downs before the medium and long break off for a sprint around Bough Beech Reservoir and a slog up Toys Hill. Everyone comes back together for the iconic climb that is Titsey Hill (an optional climb if you have wobbly legs by now!!). From here it’s mainly downhill to the finish.
Route options available at this venue:
Fun - 15 miles
Short - 30 miles
Medium - 60 miles
Long - 90 miles
Note: These are approximate distances and may vary slightly depending on the road conditions and weather on the day. If you wish to change the route distance, please tell a member of the RideIt! team on the day.
