|The route starts on a B road and follows it to the A24 roundabout were you go straight over and fall into a different world of quite small roads and continue past warnham were you have to spend a small amount of time on the A29 were once again you continue on small roads until your final stint on a larger road happens the B2127 (apart from the very end of the cycle).
This is were to find a lane that travels towards the most physically challenging part of the ride which is your ascent of leith hill you then continue through coldharber until you reach vincent lane were you follow the one way system around to Dorking High Street.
This is a really nice not technically challenging but you might find yourself gasping for air up a couple of the hills.
Would recomend mountain bike if there has been rain recently or it is raing as some of the roads can get very wet sometimes slightly flooded and a bit of wet mud can come onto the road. But if dry a road bike would be great.
