The return leg includes the climb up Remenham Hill before turning right to Warren Row where you can refuel at Velolife Cafe (39 miles). The route stays off the main […]

David’s Octopus Route

8 ways up Leith Hill – for the brave amongst you… The route starts in Dorking and ends at the top of Leith Hill on the 8th climb – so beware: the GPX is not the full distance! (full distance c.100miles if riding to and from Esher). I found my Garmin got confused with all […]

New Alresford (Hants)

A route away from the usual Surrey routes (along with the Stockbridge route), but both easily accessible within a 50min drive. This one is undulating with 2-3 hills of note that each rise by between 250ft and 450ft. Cracking route. Lunch recommendation on this route is just off the route at The Fox in Bramdean which […]
