Olympic Nostalgia




Distance Elevation Gain Ride Type


The 2021 Olympic Road Race route cuts through central London to cross the River Thames at Putney Bridge. Pass the Pearson shop (come in, grab a coffee and say hi if you have the time), cycle through Richmond Park and Bushy Park before starting the loop through Surrey.

Take on the famous Box Hill, repeated loops excluded from this route, and enjoy the breathtaking view once you have conquered the zig-zag hill, before heading back towards London passing through Esher and back through Richmond Park.
