70 miles, the usual lumps of Box Hill, Leith Hill and ghastly Whitedown but after that it’s mostly downhill and a fabulous fast finish.
A delightful loop, starting East along Pilgrims way, into Westerham, up Hosey Hill and past Chartwell. Tea there if you fancy or at Four Elms, a few miles further. Then to How Green and over the River Eden by Hever Castle. Back towards Edenbridge, then to Itchingwood Common, then that tiny bump called Pains Hill and Nero’s is just minutes away!
A lovely 32 mile ride along Pilgrim’s Way through very pretty Shoreham to Eynsford, tea at the Riverside Cafe is optional. Then a climb up Bower Lane with spectacular views and down into Otford and around the ‘prettiest roundabout in Britain’. And back to Pilgrim’s way. An Oxted CC Classic.
Well, only round the back of Knole Park! Starts East along Pilgrims Way, then the big climb to Ide Hill. Some fabulous scenery, woods, hills, distance views, then down to very pretty Seal and Shoreham and back along Pilgrims Way. Hilly but spectacular. Perhaps not on a day with a strong Westerly wind.
That’s 40 miles total, there are many alternatives to and from Horsted Keynes, we’ll explore other options and post the favourite route.
