Provisional route information

THE EPIC 125 (Distance: 125km / 78 miles, Climbing: 1800m / 5900ft)

Name a trail or a famous hill top in Surrey and it is most likely included in this route.  After Rolling out through the vines of Denbies Wine Estate and through Polesden Lacey  the route turns west heading via the stunning views of Ranmore, Newlands Corner and St Martha’s reaching as far as Puttenham Common before turning south via Mare Hill. Riders then turn east returning via Peaslake, Holmbury and Leith Hill.  Epic views, Epic riding, Epic day.

THE EPIC 75 (Distance: 75km / 47 miles Climbing: 1200m / 3900ft)

Heading out on the same trails as the 125 taking in those incredible Ranmore views, the 75 turns back at Shalford via the Downs Link to re-join the 125 for the return leg via Peaslake, Holmbury and Leith Hill.  This route is a fantastic way to find out why riding in the Surrey Hills AONB is so popular and why we have named this event ‘The Epic’.  A good stepping stone towards the 125 next year!

THE EPIC 25 (Distance: 25km / 15 miles Climbing: 480m / 1500ft)

Riding out via Polesden Lacey onto Ranmore the 25 gives riders a taster for what is in store on the longer routes whilst also taking in some of the best views and riding in The Surrey Hills AONB.  Just as epic as the other routes in it’s own way and achievable by all.
