Dorking Down's Foot - Strong Plus

Monday 1st April at 9.00am This is what time the ride will set off. It’s best to get to the starting point at least 15 minutes beforehand to avoid missing the start.

Starting Point & Postcode
The public car park, Reigate Road Opposite Dorking Halls Leisure Centre RH4 1SJ
Overall Duration On a long ride, it’s sometimes good to have a little break in the middle, or maybe a catch up at the beginning or end to keep it sociable. This means that the overall ride duration may be longer than the actual cycling time.
3 hours 50 mins  (3 hours 10 mins cycling)
Bike Type You probably don’t want to drag your road bike across bumpy trails. Maybe you want to make the most of the suspension on your mountain bike. This helps you match your ride to your bike.

Challenging rides on the road for adults only If you’ve been riding a road bike for a while, and perhaps been thinking about joining a cycling club, these rides – brand new for 2012 – are for you. The prospect of a speedy pace over twenty to fifty miles, and the strong likelihood of some hills thrown in along the way, means our Ride Strong Plus rides are not for the faint-hearted.

A gorgeous challenging ride from the centre of Dorking out into the beauty of rural Surrey. Within just two miles we'll be out of town and in wonderful countryside taking in views of spectacular English scenery. We'll head south past Holmwood Common, then turn west toward Ewhurst and Cranleigh, before a figure of eight turns us round and we head for home. The 42 mile route is aimed at the fitter or more experienced riders and while it's long, is not too hilly. This ride is perfect for a blast of fresh air and a challenging ride out in great company!

If you've already tried one of our Ride Strong Plus rides and you're ready for the next challenge, why not try a British Cycling Sportive?

Meet the Ride Leaders

  • Nick Rawling Nick Rawling Hi my name is Nick and I live in Slough.
    In my youth I did Road Racing and held a 1st Category licence.
    I have also been one of the few Brits privileged to have worked with Professional Cycle Racing teams on the Tour de France and the Giro d' Italia as well as some Six Day track events.
    These days I only cycle for pleasure be it on the road or off road leaving the racing to viewing only on Eurosport.
    I look forward to meeting you on up coming Sky Rides
