Start & Finish

This route's official start/end point is the KOM banner atop the Fox Hill climb. That means you'll have a lead-in of approximately 5 km before the route actually starts, and that lead-in includes a climb up Fox Hill!

We’ve created two Strava segments, one for the “event version” (which begins at the start pens) and one which begins at the Fox Hill KOM banner.

Route Description

Route profile by ZwiftHub – the place to plan and track your route achievements!

London’s “Surrey Hills” route takes you on a complete tour of all the climbs on the London course, riding over each pass in both directions. Since the route keeps you almost entirely off of flat ground, you get a lot of climbing done in just over 40km.

Interestingly, this route begins at a different spawn point then other London routes, facing in what is typically the reverse direction. This bypasses the typical flat London start so you can get climbing quickly!

Once you’re in the Surrey Hills, you will continue to ride this route, never going back into the city or crossing the start/finish banner.

One bummer about how this route works is it dumps you onto the Box Hill KOM after the start line, which means you don’t get credit for that segment.

The training route navigates back to central London after km 41.0, reaching the S/F banner at 43.4 km, so a second climb of Fox Hill would require a manual navigation change. The route profile listed on this page is misleading, starting at the Fox Hill finish banner, as the ride begins prior to the start of Fox Hill.

**correction**: I think the navigation in the game is actually correct: it sends the rider back up Fox Hill, and the end-of-route notification occurs there.

Yes. The route simply starts and ends at the banner after the Fox Hill ascent. All before that is just a lead-in (including first Fox Hill ascent).

I don’t understand this new format. Where is the start? Is it CCW or not? Where are Leigh Hill, Fox hill and Keith hill on the map?

You see the two red squares? The northern one is the finish of Box Hill (from west) and Fox Hill (from east). The southern one is the finish of Leigh Hill (from west) and Keith Hill (from east).
Start is near Tower Bridge where most London Courses start, but in opposite direction (towards the bridge). It is both CCW and CW as this changes two times.

The first climb is the Fox Hill and it’s the part of the lead-in to the actual loop which starts at the banner (on top of the hill). Then it is Keith Hill, Box Hill, Leith Hill and Fox Hill as a final ascent with finish line at the hill top banner.

just rode this, stopped after 52km and 1028 metres of climbing as it wanted to send me up box hill. Also, it took me across both Leith hill and fox hill twice. This route simply isn’t accurate. Also, when you select the route in Zwift, it says it is 30 something km with 800+m of climbing.

Zwift shows as 39.1 but I dont think that includes the 5k lead in which should take it up to 44.1. Sounds like something wrong with your ride 🙁
I’m going to give it a go after work to see how it goes!

I took this route yesterday. I rode 67,4 km and did 1026 meter uphill. I climbed 5 times including the lead inn and were also suddenly on the other side of the river. I didn’t get the batch. My ride is looking different then the actual route. Something must have vent wrong…
