Join Alex for a new XC route in the Surrey Hills, it is largely off-road and covers a variety of terrain. The route is suitable for a good gravel bike with some reasonably wide tyres (the route is sandy in places), or a hardtail mountain bike. You will need a good level of fitness to complete this route.

We start by climbing on the road from Haselmere before cutting onto bridleways to complete the climb up to the Gibbet Hill viewpoint. From here we descend down some grassy and slightly rocky bridleways before heading into Hankley Common where we pass the Atlantic Wall, built by the Canadians in WWII to practice breaching the French sea defences on d-day. We continue along a ridgeline before descending down to Frensham Little Pond, where there is a chance to make use of a National Trust cafe. From there we continue along various bridleways before finishing by descending into Guildford where we can catch a train back to London.

We will meet outside Haslemere Train station at 9:40. I will be on the 8:35 train to Haslemere from London Waterloo, which arrives in Haselmere at 9:38. We will be returning from Guildford, so a day return to Guildford and a single from Guildford to Haselmere works out cheaper than two singles to/from the separate stations.

This is a great day out and a chance to experience a great off-road route close to London.

We welcome competent riders that want to advance their mountain biking skills. If there are sections you are not happy to ride, these can be walked and the group will wait for you.
