Bike Adventure

A gorgeous one day ride from Wimbledon heading across the Surrey Hills and North Wessex Downs, expect a great day in the saddle with plenty of undulation to test the legs and special guest joining in to provide some "professional insight!"

We'll assemble in Cannizaro House in Wimbledon for a quick photograph or two before heading out towards Epsom and crossing the M25 just outside Leatherhead; from here we'll tackle the first proper challenge as we enter the Surrey Hills! For lunch we'll be stopping at The Mill at Elstead, a quaint pub on the River Wey. After lunch we're heading West towards the edge of the North Wessex Downs, expect the occasional challenging climb and picturesque views across the british countryside. The ride shall then finish near Tangley for a BBQ and a couple of brews at Downlands Farm House. Don't forget to wear your best kit as we have a special guest joining in!

Route Map

What is a Level 3.0 Cycling Challenge Like?

These rides are typically multi day rides, with medium distances and undulating terrain. Level 3 rides suit riders who ride regularly, and are looking for something challenging but manageable. In the case of single day events, you can expect up to 8 hours of cycling with breaks. In the case of a multi day ride, you can expect a slightly lower daily duration - but of course - the effort is sustained over a longer period. You should be a competent rider, with regular training outings - both at the weekend and ideally with another session during the week. A 10 week training programme is available for our 3 star rides.


How Fit Do I need to be to join a Level 3.0 ‘Bike Ride’?

You need to have good endurance for these events. You must be used to doing long bike rides in the countryside of 5 hours + and distances of between 45 - 55 miles . You should be doing regular exercise - with some serious cycle training (at least twice per week in the run up to the event). Your typical comfortable cycling speed will be around 21-23 km/hr on flat and gently undulating terrain, and you should be able to cycle at higher speed for up to 1 hour or 25 km (on a road bike). You may also blend in other types of exercise - but for longer periods of time (ie sessions in excess of 1.5 hrs.) - however cycling is the best preparation (obviously!)


Medical Issues

Please note, it is extremely important for this physical challenge that you are in good health. If you have any pre-existing medical conditions, please consider carefully whether you should be joining the challenge. Please ensure you fill in the booking form accurately and honestly, this is important. In the case of serious conditions (epilepsy, diabetes, heart conditions, recent illness or operations), please discuss the challenge with your GP. Please also ensure you notify us of any allergies or similar.

It requires stamina and good aerobic fitness - but good willpower will also come in handy! Failure to disclose medical conditions is a serious omission - that could have serious repercussions on any of our challenges.

Safety Information

It is your responsibility to thoroughly check the proper operation of your bicycle prior to the event. It is also your responsibility to ride safely at all times on the course - this especially applies to any downhill sections - where you need to keep your speed under control, and taking care at any time you overtake another rider. This ride is on open roads - and whilst we attempt to use smaller roads, you need to be courteous to other road users.



Being in the UK we should be prepared for anything. Whilst not wishing everyone to bring heaps of equipment we should be prepared for wet and cold.


Notes on Cycling Events

This is our standard range of Cycling Challenges in the UK, Europe and further afield. However, we offer completely tailormade itineraries to your specification. Call us to discuss! Please note that for overseas point to point cycling challenges we can transport soft cases for bike transport - but not hard cases, due to space limitations on board our support vehicles. On all our cycling events, please pack sensibly and bring a reasonably sized soft holdall type bag. To participate in an overseas Adventure Cafe challenge - you must carry Travel Insurance (to be for the activity you are participating in, and to include repatriation to the UK). Please also note that you should have a good level of cycling experience and be competent to handle your bike. We ride on roads shared with other vehicles - and you need to be able to deal with this safely.
