- Best Route – Richmond out to Box Hill
My roadie mates do something more like the Oylmpic Course which joins the Surrey Hills further west (Staples Lane near Newlands Corner) having ridden quieter roads through villages south of M25, then cross cross a few times to get some climbing in before box hill.Posted 4 years ago
Got a few friends in town this weekend with their road bikes and having not ridden mine for a while was wondering whether any of you London folks can describe the best route out to Dorking / Box hill from Richmond area. I’m thinking that its probably out through Richmond Park, Hampton Court, Esher, Oxshott, Leatherhead, Dorking. Any tips, great roads which are quiet etc?
thanks.Posted 4 years agocrazy-legsSubscriber
Is it worse than Chalk Pit Lane?
It’s a lot longer than Chalk Pit Lane but it doesn’t have that horrible bit where you go round a blind corner then see a sign that says 20%!
There’s a whole host of tough climbs up that ridge. My old cycle club used White Lane only a couple of miles along from Chalk Pit Lane as its annual club hill climb champs.Posted 4 years ago
