Glorious Gravel: Surrey
Explore a new part of Surrey, away from the famous climbs, avoiding the roads and going well off the beaten track. This 74km loop from the stunning Mill at Elstead should take you between 4 & 6 hrs with some rolling hills at the start & end either side of a long, fast and flat section on the Downs Links.
The ride is covid secure with groups of 6 starting every 5 minutes & spacious feed stops. There are ride marshalls supporting you on the route & a broom wagon to collect anyone that needs it. The Glorious Gravel series is all about getting out into nature and celebrating the beautiful country we call home. We have feed stops every 25km with coffee, soup & a roll as well as fruit, waffles, OTE bars and hydration. This ride is suitable for most abilities with few technical sections and a mostly flat or rolling route.

We will email you the GPX route & a full breakdown of the route one week before the ride. Our route director will then be at the start to give you last minute advice and tips. You will be asked to select a start window which we will then confirm one week before the ride to ensure you roll out in group sizes based on current restrictions.
