Surrey Hills Switchback Gravelcross

Chilton, Surrey, 15th July 2018


This event has been rescheduled from March 4th to July 15th due to severe weather conditions on the original date.


The Surrey Hills Switchback Gravelcross is an awesome ride, in one of the south’s cycling hotspots!

We rescheduled this event from March (remember the snow?), but we’ve decided to make summer the new permanent date for the Surrey Hills Switchback!
It’s going to be awesome! proper summer gravelcross, mixing up dirt tracks, forest trails and gnarly back lanes for some fast, dry, dusty riding! The Switchback makes to most of the Surrey Hills to create a fantastic, on pace open hill endurance ride, perfect for gravel, CX or fast MTB.

Based in the ever popular Surrey Hills, the Switchback is a blast from the word go! Head out into the hills on a mixed course featuring the best of the magnificent network of back lanes, fire roads and tracks that this prime cycling destination has to offer! And of course, we will keep you fuelled and on track with the full package of organisation and support that you can rely on at CX Sportive Series events!
