The availability of free homemade refreshments is also very popular. In 2023 we introduced an additional event, Vintage Velo, for vintage bicycles and wearing a vintage jersey. There is a choice of two routes. The shorter Flyer covers 90km and involves 1100m of climbing. It follows a meandering, quiet, course around the North Downs and Surrey Hills. The longer Flyer Challenge covers 162km (100 miles) and involves 1900m of climbing. This route takes riders along quiet country lanes, down to Amberley in West Sussex and back through lovely places such as Rudgwick and Peaslake in the Surrey Hills. Both routes are challenging and take in local climbs including Staple Lane, Pitch Hill and Combe Bottom. The routes are available below in electronic form. Riders are strongly advised to download these to a portable navigation device if they can. From time to time events are sabotaged by direction signs being removed. We would hate anyone's enjoyment of the day being ruined should this happen.

This event is part of May Flyer Sportive.
