Riding Box Hill and Beyond




In the build up to the Olympics Box Hill has been getting a lot of attention. Last weekend I indulged in the newly laid Tarmac. With 220m of elevation and no considerable steepness the hill is not the biggest challenge but its a lovely ride with ONE stylish hair pin worthy of a Rouleur magazine double spread.  Last weekend was one of the finest days of our so far dismal Spring, so the crowds were out. There would have been around 50 riders on the climb at any one time and there was a great atmosphere. I climbed the hill twice with a fairly nice 8 mile loop. The male olympians will be climbing the hill a staggering 9 times. After Box Hill we rode onto the Surrey hill lapping around Peaslake. I couldn't be more impressed with the riding in the Surrey Hills. Constant rolling hills and stunning surroundings. The best of British especially in the Sunshine.
