Is this ride suitable for you? You'll need to be capable of cycling approximately 49 miles per day. We will likely split into two pace groups so you can cycle as quickly or as slowly as you like. There will be plenty of breaks and our friendly guides always make sure no one is left behind. Our rides are all about taking in wonderful views, seeing the countryside and enjoying the experience. It's not about getting there as quickly as we can!

WHAT'S SO GREAT ABOUT THIS TRIP?

Quite simply, Red Fox Cycling was born in London and we love our city! So taking our fellow Londoners on a ride, and having the chance to guide you to the magnificent Boomtown, is about as great as it gets. Even getting out of London is surprisingly picturesque. Going out via the Wandle Valley and pretty Morden Hall Park, our route takes us around Box Hill and deep into the Surrey Hills. After our first day of riding, we'll stay in a lovely campsite at the foot of Leith Hill, the highest point in South East England. There's plenty of choice for dinner, either a group meal in the nearby village of Forest Green or a campfire in our spacious campsite. It's up to you. Our route continues through the South Downs National Park, a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. We aim to reach Boomtown by about 5pm. All cyclists get free Wednesday entry (worth £20) and plenty of other exciting perks!
