ATTENTION !!!: We have been notified by Surrey CC Highways that the M25 will be closed between Leatherhead and Chertsey junctions on 17th March. Traffic diversions are likely through Cobham and heavier than usual traffic on surrounding roads rendering access difficult and the ride experience poorer. Thankfully, by moving a week back and a mile South (to Downside Village Hall – the 2023 HQ), we can still hold the event. Please note that the British Cycling website currently shows the old date, which should be update early this week. Current entrants can either ride on the new date, transfer their entry to someone who can or request a refund. Apologies that we have had to do this and thank you for your understanding. TCC, 28th Jan 2024

Start/Finish Downside, Cobham, Surrey
The Surrey Rumble is a Twickenham CC organised and run event. It takes place across 80 mile [125km] and 60 mile [95km] routes through the Surrey Hills using out and back loops from event HQ at Downside Village Hall.
This friendly event is managed and run entirely by club members, with the very sensible exception of first aid provision. It has grown from 50 or so riders in its first year to 200+ entrants in the last few years.
ENTRY FEE: £19 [+ £1 admin fee] via the British Cycling website: Enter
Places fill up quickly as it’s one of the very few early season sportives, and very popular with local riders, due to its friendly atmosphere and reasonable price – £20, which remains unchanged from previous years.
