Farnham Charity Bike Ride 2022

Sunday 3 July

Where: Farnham

Registration fee: £20 Minimum sponsorship: £100

Four circular routes starting in Farnham and ranging from 16 miles to 75 miles around the beautiful Surrey countryside.

Fun Riders
If you love riding through the countryside, passing winding streams of crystal clear water, through cosy villages and stunning woodland, then we’ve got two looped routes for you to enjoy.

Sweet Sixteen – 16 miles
This is a lovely route through the local hills and valleys. It’s perfect for families with younger kids who might find the longer routes too daunting. But it’s not all plain sailing because there’s 1,200 feet of climbing to take on. Luckily we’ve got a refreshment point to keep you and your bikes well oiled.

Start time: 09:30

16mile Farnham

The Classic – 25 miles
This is our original route and still our favourite. It features 1,800 feet of climbing up challenging but doable hills, two refreshment points, and loads of fabulous sites to enjoy; up and over the Surrey and Hampshire hills.

Start time: 09:00

25mile Farnham

Longer Routes
If you’re looking for two challenging rides to get those legs tuned up for that big race later in the summer, then we’ve got two circular routes through the stunning hills around Surrey and Hampshire. They’re designed to test everyone from keen amateurs to club riders and beyond.

The Big Fifty – 50 miles
The 50-mile route includes 3,400 feet of climbing, three refreshment points, and follows the 75-mile route until Colemore, near Selborne. It then makes its way towards Hawkley, where the routes join up again.

Start time: 08:30

50mile Farnham

Butser or Bust – 75 miles
This route has 5,400 feet of climbing, five refreshment points, and is a real test! After leaving the 50-mile route, it heads south to East Meon, then up Butser Hill, before turning north at Chalton. It goes through the villages of Buriton, Langrish and Steep, before re-joining the 50-mile route near Hawkley. You’ll sleep well after finishing this route in a good time.

Start time: 08:00

75mile Farnham
