Shackleford Spring Punch: A New Twist on an Old Favourite!

We’re returning to the venue of our ever popular New Year event for a spring ride with a little extra punch! Enjoy a spectacular Spring outing across the Surrey Heaths and out to the Devils Punchbowl!

Based in the tiny village of Shackleford, near Guildford, this is an accessible event with easy access from the A3, but also perfectly placed ot get you right out into the countryside of the Surrey heathland!
We’ve changed things up from our New Year event; running some of the course the other way round, keeping some of your favourite bits just how they are, and taking the opportunity to explore sections of the commons that we can’t usually use in winter. Expect a fast and furious course, with an entertaining variety of trails to it; from the unique challenges of the greensand heaths, to the unexpected gnarl of the Punchbowl descents! There’s a bewildering network of trails around here, but we’ve used our local knowledge and experience of the area to pick out the very best spring circuit  – all you have to do is ride and enjoy!




Lezyne Ride for the Prize

You can win some great kit from Lezyne at this event, and all you have to do is ride! Prizes are awarded completely at random - you just need to check your ride time on the screen at the finish to see if you're a winner. You could walk away with an awesome piece of Lezyne swag worth up to £80!

Riding the Surrey Heaths

Between Farnham, Guildford and Haslemere sits this unique set of heathland trails, typified by sandy tracks, a bewildering choice of paths and topped off by the stunning Devils Punchbowl!

The Surrey Heaths are a wonderful pocket of countryside packing a huge choice of riding into a relatively compact area of the otherwise busy south. The open heathlands hide an impressive network of trails and we’ve picked the very bset for you. This is not the hilliest area, but with plenty of off road to put in the mix with some great, wisty singletrack included, it’s a fast and entertaining ride throughout. There are some surprises in the form the infamous soft local greensand, which takes some skill and care to negotiate and find the right line, and for the full route, the descent from the Devils Punchbowl, which gets a little gnarlier than you might give Surrey credit for! It’s a lot of fun, and the views across the punchbowl are a high point of the ride in every sense!

All in all, this course will give you plenty to enjoy, a great dirt to tarmac ratio and lots of oppotunity to really get your legs turning.

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.
Entry on the Day
You can enter the event on the day, although there is a small surcharge of £2 (so pre entering is recommended). Just arrive before the end of the registration period and pay at the desk.
Go to the registration desk on your arrival. If you’ve pre-entered via the internet or posted your entry, you’ll have a timing chip on an ankle strap to collect at the desk. If you haven’t pre-entered, pay at the desk and a chip will be allocated to you. Collect your colour A4 map at registration also. Next, get yourself ready to ride.
Following the Route
Follow the orange signs and orange ribbons (you will shown samples of these at the ride briefing) regardless of which route distance you are riding. Everybody follows orange. At route divide points, you will see a set of yellow signs, with “Full Route”, “Mid Route” or “Short Route” written on them, pointing in different directions. At this point, follow the right sign for the route you are riding. Once you get beyond the route divide point, you will start following orange signs and ribbons again.

(Please note, in spite of our best efforts, signs can go missing or be tampered with during the course of the day. Make sure you pick up a copy of the route map at event registration, and carry it with you for use if needed. We also send out GPS files to all pre entries prior to the event, so if oyu want ot have the route on your phone or GPS device, sign up online now!)

Hot and cold food and drink and snacks will be available to purchase from the event centre before and after the ride. (Including our ever popular home made chilli!)
