Surrey - Box Hill Olympic Cycle Route

Follow in the footsteps (or wheels) of Bradley Wiggins!

The Box Hill Olympic cycling route is a great way to see some of the Surrey countryside. And if that doesn't tempt you, it's also the 2012 Olympic road cycle race route.

You can follow in the wake of our great Olympian cyclists as you take this 2.5km route through the Surrey Hills, that follows part of the official Olympic route.

Box Hill is well and truly on the map for road cycling following the London 2012 Olympic road races. Billions of people around the world watched international athletes battle it out on the challenging Zig Zag road.

Please note that this route follows a dual carriageway but there is a cycling path alongside. This is a scenic road route, with a mixture of A & B roads, country lanes and some good hills.

Starting at the Burford Bridge Hotel, turn back on yourself and go right on the roundabout along the A24. Follow the cycle path.

When you reach the next roundabout at Givons Grove, turn right onto the Leatherhead Bypass.

At the Reigate Road roundabout, take the third exit following Reigate Road (B2033). Keep following this road as it becomes Mill Way and then Leech Lane. Continue following this road round to the right.

Turn right along this road, continue along until reaching a junction and turn right following Headley Common Road. You will pass by Headley Heath and Headley Cricket Club. Follow this road.

There will be a sharp right turn, take this along Boxhill Road. This road takes you along the top of Boxhill and offers picturesque views over the surrounding landscape and the Surrey Hills AONB.

Take this zig zag road until you reach Old London Road and the end of your journey.
