Forget cycling to Brighton and getting the train back! This out and back route will take in the best country roads of Surrey and Sussex.
We’ll start off with the gently undulating Surrey Hills before winding our way into Sussex where the roads get noticeably quieter. Following lunch near the coast, we’ll head back towards Dorking via the stunning viewpoint of Devil’s Dyke (a decent climb with a max grade of 6.8%).
Whilst not the steepest of days, the route is fairly challenging and a great introduction to riding in the South Downs. All we ask is that you come prepared with a smile on your face and ready to ride. We’ll do the rest!
