This is a route I rode and then noticed that other DV members were doing the identical ride a few days later! To me, it is simply Forest Green and beyond, to some quiet lanes. The return leg goes up Leith Hill and down Coldharbour to Dorking. There is a fair amount of climbing to […]
This route takes in the 2020 DV Iron Lane segment heading out. The route is mainly quiet lanes that undulate through the countryside.

This ride to coffee and cake is definitely a route of two halves. Climbing Beech Avenue and Critten Lane to cross the downs and descending White Down (caution!). Then its another long easy climb to Holmbury St Mary and descent to Forest Green. Cross the A29 and A24 to reach Newdigate. The farm shop is […]

Head out to Cobham via the Esher “bumps” and at the Fairmile turn towards Fetcham. A few climbs get you to Great Bookham. A gentle incline to Effingham and then it’s downhill all the way to Cobham. Most newcomers then swear at the “bumps” coming into Esher! Right click and download.
A fairly flat route with no steep climbs. A little climb at St Ann’s Hill, Chertsey and a few undulations. Can be ridden as a fast loop as there are long sections without interruption. If you need to refuel there is a great Turkish cafe in the centre of Chobham. Right click and download.
