Cycle routes

I frequently lead cycle rides for Redhill Cycling Club, our local YMCA and a group called Team Cake. All the rides are social and aim for a café where we stop for tea or coffee and a bite to eat. They all use one route out and return by a different route. The routes I use all avoid main roads wherever possible and stick to minor roads.

They are listed below. gpx files  are here. To download a route onto your computer, double click on its icon.  The file can be loaded into a satnav designed for cycling (Garmin or Satmap) or onto a suitable app on a smartphone. To look at them on my computer, I use bikehike. They are all start either from Redhill Aerodrome or from the YMCA. They of course can be adapted to start anywhere in the Redhill/Reigate area.
