Info for Riders

Surrey Legs of Steel 2013 is a challenging sportive in the Surrey Hills. Riders will roll out between 8am - 9am. There will be two routes - 81k & 46k - with plenty of hills to stretch your legs on! The short route at 46k is no easy option with 1020m of climbing! Riders taking the short route will experience five major climbs: Ranmore Hill, Leith Hill, Holmbury Hill, White Down Hill (an 18% climb!) and finish with the ZigZag at Box Hill. The long route at 81k has 1600m of climbing and will take riders up eight major climbs: Ranmore Hill, Leith Hill, Holmbury Hill, Winterfold Hill (an awesome 21% climb!), St Martha’s Hill, Coombe Bottom Hill, Dunley Hill and again finishing with the ZigZag at Box Hill. The event is held to commemorate Dave Aitchison, a rising star in British triathlon and Ful-On Tri club member who died suddenly in January 2007 aged 29. The event is open to anyone with a passion for cycling and the thigh-burning Surrey hills where Dave did mostof his training for his spectacular 2006 season.
