Route name - Pilgrims and a Star - 88KM  

Kickstarting our 2024 Ride Calendar, we're hitting the lanes for a selected charity (Wheels for Wellbeing) and raising money for a good cause. As it suggests, the route takes us along the Pilgrim's Way where we'll stop off at Velo Barn for a coffee and pastry. We make our way through Westerham, up Chart Lane, Toys Hill and Ide Hill before making our way back to the shop!...

 

Route name - OneSixSix Velo Cobble Classic - 45km  

Well into the Classics, we thought we'd replicate a little of what the pro's go through and cycle some of the cobbles in and around London. Finishing off at the shop, we'll be entertained and shown how it's done by the pro's as we watch the end of the epic classic, enjoying beer from a keg and a hotdog!

Route Name - Box Hill and Back - 104km  

Sunrise start this one! 7:30am at the shop. Hitting the South Circular early meandering our way through Streatham, Wandsworth and Putney, we hit a right down Priory Lane, through Roehampton Gate and into Richmond Park. Enjoy cycling through the park's tree-lined avenues and spotting wildlife such as deer.  Out through Kingston Gate and make our way through Thames Ditton and head towards Esher. This part of the route offers a mix of urban and suburban landscapes. As you approach Esher, you'll start to see signs for Box Hill.

Follow the road signs towards Box Hill. The terrain will gradually become hillier as you approach the North Downs. The climb up Box Hill is the most challenging part of the route, but the panoramic views from the summit make it worthwhile. Take your time, enjoy the climb, and don't forget to take in the stunning scenery.  

Route name - 4 Kent Cols - 90km  

Starting out from the shop, we head towards Bromley and out to the lanes up Layhams towards Beddlestead, the first of the climbs. Enjoy the rolling hills and countryside scenery as you make your way to this charming village. From Beddlestead, navigate towards Toys Hill. This route will take you through winding roads and wooded areas. As you approach Toys Hill, be prepared for a challenging climb. Toys Hill is known for its steep ascent and offers breathtaking views from the top. Descend from Toys Hill and cycle towards Ide Hill. The route between Toys Hill and Ide Hill takes you through picturesque landscapes and quaint villages. Enjoy the downhill sections and get ready for the next ascent. Leave Ide Hill and head towards Star Hill. This part of the route introduces you to more undulating terrain. Star Hill itself is a notable climb, so pace yourself and take in the surrounding beauty as you ascend.
