This event is going ahead as planned, under the government road map that allows the resumption of organised outdoor sports for March 29th.

RIDE IN SAFETY: We are proceeding with this event based on the assessment that is a safe activity in current circumstances, for the following reasons:

  1. Outdoor activities are rated as significantly safer than indoor activities.
  2. This event is not a ‘static gathering’. It spreads participants over large course area and long time period by design.
  3. Off-road cycling is a naturally socially distancing activity.
  4. We have risk assessed every aspect of the events and introduced new safety procedures wherever necessary.

We will continue to follow official advice and best practice in running our events (including mask use, social distancing and hygiene procedure wherever appropriate), and to monitor changes in advice. Details of specific advice and requirements for this event will be released in the run up to the event, and will be based on the latest government and scientific advice at that time.

For details of the general precautions we are taking to keep events safe, see our full coronavirus information update here.

BOOK WITH CONFIDENCE: All our events are open for booking, and we are committed to honouring your booking with us. In the event that we cannot run an event on the advertised date, your booking will be valid for a rescheduled date or transfer to another event with us of your choice within 18 months. If an event is going ahead, but you can’t attend for Covid related reasons (such as quarantining or tier related travel restrictions), you can also request a transfer of your booking to a future event within 18 months. During 2020, we have had 11 events disrupted by lockdown restrictions. We successfully rescheduled 7 of those, and have honoured every affected booking  to ensure that no rider loses out.

Riding the Surrey Hills

Starting on the fringes of the Surrey Hills, this ride takes you into their very heart and back out again, to explore a mix of the most popular tracks and hidden gems!

The Surrey Hills are one of the most popular MTB destinations in the UK. But in recent years, the focus on a small number of man made trails has led many to forget just what a great mix of open trail riding the area has to offer! Let the Bramley Trail Ride show you some of the best. Roll out on fast tracks from the picturesque village of Chilton into some of the very best riding in the south east, you’ll enjoy a series of climbs, descents with enough technical spice to keep things interesting, plus sweeping views and beautiful scenery. This ride will be designed to make the most of the summer conditions, to create a ride to really enjoy!

Event Logistics

On the Ride

Once you’re ready to start, report to the start / finish area with your timing chap strapped to your ankle. Listen to the short briefing and ride across the timing mat as directed. As you go around the route, you will find bright orange signs and ribbons to follow. At route divide points, you will find yellow signs showing you which way to go to follow the Full, Mid or Short routes. These should guide you around the whole route, but use your map if you think you have strayed off course or have a problem with the route navigation. There are also emergency contact numbers on the edge of your map. Ride safely at all times, and remember that you are on public rights of way and roads. This is not a race, so please ride appropriately, and be friendly and polite to other trail users you meet. At the end of the ride, pass over the timing mat once again, and hand in your timing chip. For those interested in there ride time, these will be available on the computer screen at the finish.
