Start/fin­ish Big­gin Hill Dis­tance 57 miles Rid­ing time 2 hours Check­points 1 (Spa Val­ley Rail­way)

A short but very sweet route start­ing and fin­ish­ing at the Big­gin Hill air­field in Kent, which played a huge part in the Bat­tle of Bri­tain in the Sec­ond World War. Reader Andy Clarke says he uses it for a quick morn­ing ride or a post-work blast to clear the cob­webs and it heads south into the North Downs be­fore turn­ing back to­wards Groom­bridge and the RIDE check­point at the Spa Val­ley Rail­way. It then cuts across coun­try to East Grin­stead then re­turns to Big­gin Hill, over the top of the Downs, with stun­ning views on the way.
