Surrey Cycleway & Box Hill ride

A medium paced all-day ride from Orpington to Epsom via the North Downs and Surrey Cycleway, approximately 50miles. In the morning there will be a gentle climb over the North Downs with fantastic views over Kent and Surrey, riding along quiet country lanes and then descending to Godstone for an early Lunch. From there we join the Surrey Cycleway and head towards the beautiful Mole Valley.
The day will finish with an ascent of the famous (and newly resurfaced) Zig Zag road to the National Trust cafe (also refurbished) atop Box Hill. More fantastic views of the south-east and a gentle roll towards Epsom Downs past the racecourse.

Plenty of opportunities to drop out if you don't feel like the full distance - Horley at 25 miles or Dorking at 40miles. No-one left behind, suitable for all bikes.
Meet at London Bridge station outside the national rail ticket office at 9am for a train to Orpington. Return from Sutton station around 5pm. Both stations in Oyster zone 6.
