Inevitably, the clue is in the name of the Wiggle Ups and Downs sportive. It’s an early-season test like few others and its many climbs and descents will get the heart racing no matter what. The tight and technical turns in the fast country lanes add to a great variety of climbing roads in the North and South Downs on a great test of a route.
The route explores hidden country lanes in and around Surrey before cropping up near Godalming – you won’t enter the urban area, instead it’s time to head to the South Downs. You’ll go as far down as Wisborough Green, and into Sussex, before surfacing and edging back into Surrey, where the remainder of the testing hills present themselves near the end of the route.
Conquer the Surrey Hills climbs and you’ll soon be crowned in glory crossing the finish line to receive your finisher’s medal, t-shirt and PowerBar recovery produc
Choice of 33, 26 or 17 mile courses
The Surrey Hills are oft-explored by our road-riding cycling cousins, yet there’s so much more to see off the beaten track on the trails and sprawling wooded sections of the rural area – taking in similar areas of the North Downs and beyond in the Wiggle Ups and Downs MTB sportive.
The peaks of the tracks, trails and bridleways of Ranmore Common, Hurst Wood, Wooton Common and Broadmoor make up a course of exciting forest action, weaving through the countryside on a testing course that offers a multitude of speedy downhill descents in exchange for the tricky climbs you’ll pass to reach them – complimented by inspiring views atop these peaks.
Heading out from Dorking, you’ll be straight out onto the North Downs Way as you head out under the shadow of Box Hill and surrounding looming road climbs, before venturing out into the Surrey countryside. You’ll follow neat trails and hillside bridleways as you head out towards Abinger Common, then through woodland to Holmbury St Mary and Peaslake.
Moving on from the first feed station of the day, which waits on the southern-most tip of the sprawling course, the real climbing and descending action of the day unfolds. A quick and long downhill trail waits just after the turn-off before Farley Green – but downhill means you’ll need to climb once out of the village of Shere.
Then it’s the turn of the off-road sections of the hallowed Surrey Hills climbs – moving around Whitedowns and Ranmore Common, then followed by a mostly downhill last few miles to the finish line.
There’s much to see and much to enjoy in this technical and very rewarding off-road Surrey sportive.

The Wiggle Sussex Gran Fondo will show you the best of what West Sussex and Hampshire have to offer – and then both the North and South Downs – yep, the 125-mile route really is a long one. Nine major climbs and five other significant ascents will come before you as this mega-mile epic unfolds, giving this the potential to be your crowning glory of the season’s riding success.

e Wiggle South Downs Epic stands out as one of our best mountain bike events in the calendar. At 40 miles, the Epic route of this ride is the longest, and its 3,218ft of elevation gain also makes for the most amount of climbing – with Standard and Short courses also ranking as relatively tough.
