Looking for some route inspiration for your local gravel rides in the London area? Parcours athlete Maddy Nutt has been sharing her top routes from around the capital. Check them out below...
1) Esher gravel loop
My all time favourite South West London gravel route. Starting and finishing at G!ro cafe in Esher, this route takes you on some hidden gravel gems and is one I have developed over many iterations and much exploring. With a mixture of single track and bridleways, this really has everything! There is a hidden single track in the woods after crossing Leatherhead by-pass so be sure not to miss this bit! On the whole flat and not that technical, this is a route for every level. This route also goes out and back to KT9 barn for scrumptious baked goodies and coffees.
One of my favourite Surrey gravel loops. This route takes you around Epsom downs before following a super fun single track descent towards Leatherhead. Back through Bookham and Esher commons and then finishing up on the Tasmin trail round Richmond park.
4) Winter appropriate Surrey gravel
