Cycling at Box Hill

Cyclists on the Zig-Zag Road at Box Hill, Surrey

Box Hill is well and truly on the map for road cycling following the London 2012 Olympic road races. Billions of people around the world watched international athletes battle it out on the challenging Zig Zag road.

Our Box Hill circuit which was used for the events was described by Team GB’s Mark Cavendish as ‘a perfect little loop’.
