Chalkpit Lane

Chalkpit lane is a wonderful climb that snakes its way up to the summit, seeming to get steeper as the climb progresses. As you leave Oxted near the railway line, the climb begins with discerning gentleness, but once you cross over the M25, you get a better view of the steep challenge to come. The gradient gets progressively steeper as you take a long right-hander before finishing on top of the Oxted Downs.
