The Ride London-Surrey 100/Classic Race is celebrating the legacy for cycling created by the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The 100 mile route, starting in the capital and then traversing Surrey’s stunning countryside is a ride that cyclists of all abilities can enjoy.
This is the shorter version of the route through Surrey, starting at Abinger Hammer through the Hurtwood, past Ockley and Leith Hill, finishing back at Abinger. For a more challenging ride, the longer route can be found here.
