The Hardest Hundred: Surrey/Kent.




Ride Type Distance Elevation Gain



Ride one of the toughest routes in the South East - take on 13 major climbs (including 8 in the Top 100 climbs) in Surrey & Kent. Starting in Cranleigh, the route starts in the Surrey Hills, before heading along the North Downs ridge to Kent. Tackle Chalkpit Lane before you head back into Surrey and the notorious Leith Hill. With over 3,000m of elevation, this is as tough a ride as you can get in the South East and a real challenge to put in the calendar for 2021.
