Bike Beans Challenge

Bike Beans Challenge


To celebrate the Olympics taking place on our doorstep, the inaugural Bike Beans challenge is a one lap cycle time trial around the 9.7 mile Olympic Road Race Box Hill circuit. Enter the challenge for your chance to win whole batch of Bike Beans goodies. There's a prize for the fastest man and women, plus an extra prize for the person that makes the most attempts at the challenge.

The Route

To take part in July's challenge you must complete one full lap of the Olympic Road Race Box Hill cycle loop during July 2012. Start at the bottom of the famous zig zag, climb Box Hill then continue along Box Hill Road towards Headley. Turn left, onto Headley Common Road go past the National Trust Car park and then turn left down Tot Hill. Continue until the roundabout junction A24. Take the first exit left at the roundabout and continue down the Leatherhead By Pass road until the next roundabout. Turn left (first exit) along the Dorking Road and then turn left at Box Hill School, travelling up through Mickleham to the finish at the bottom of the Zig Zag where you started from.
