Box Hill Ride
A moderate/hard ride down into Kent and Surrey with a chance to take in the fantastic view from Box Hill - quite a bit of climbing on this one!
Either catch the train at 08.34 from London Bridge to Hayes arriving at 09.08, or ride all the way out from Tower Hamlets. Return from Dorking for a shorter day (and if your legs are getting tired) or continue on with more hills and more North Downs countryside to Guildford and return from there. Please note that even with the early start you may not be back in London until around 8pm. Between 32 and 55 miles and 2100 and 3800 feet of climbing depending on which option you choose.
Lunch at the legendary Fanny's Farm Shop, tea and cakes at Box Hill National Trust kiosk, but bring snacks and water to keep you going.
Allow up to £14 for train fares, although that will hopefully be reduced by getting group save tickets.
Contact Caroline 07801 773131 for more details, also to arrange a meeting point if you want to ride out from Tower Hamlets.
Upcoming rides & events
Our rides are highlighted by "RIDE". You don't have to be a member to join in and we're also always looking for new ride ideas. Contact our Rides Co-ordinator for further information.
There is no need to register beforehand for a ride unless this is specifically stated, most rides are "turn up and go".
Please note that for train assisted rides we often cannot publish times until about 2 weeks beforehand because of the need to check engineering works. Also sometimes our ride leaders do have to change dates/times/routes at reasonably short notice. Generally this website will be up to date and also details will be sent out to our email groups, but if in doubt contact the ride leader or our rides co-ordinator to check arrangements.
