London Expansion: Leith Hill

London Expansion: Leith Hill

ON 9 janvier 2018 by Andrew Burke

Tour the English hillside and experience one of our most scenic climbs yet with Leith Hill. Our latest route in London, Leith Hill features nice stretches with steep grades leading up to the summit of Surrey. Cruise and climb through the countryside on this heart-pumping trek.


Now you can ride to the highest point in South East England from the comfort of your home. For Zwifters not yet familiar with the real-life Leith Hill, it’s part of the annual London-Surrey Classic and Prudential RideLondon.

Expect an average grade of 4% on this course, with heavier heart-racing segments on the way up. All that effort pays off, with two new KOMs to fight for: Leith Hill, with long and steady climbing, and Keith Hill, the steeper backside of the mountain.

This new section coincides with more news. Zwift is now the official training partner of Prudential RideLondon. Over the next few weeks, we’re rolling out group workouts and comprehensive training plans to build you up for the big day. This fresh stretch of road will give you plenty of runway to work on your climbing skills.

Choose from these three routes to explore Leith Hill.
