Denbies Duels takes place in the beautiful surroundings of Denbies Wine Estate which sits around the North Downs in Surrey close to the market town of Dorking. The Duels combine a knock out element with the traditional end of season pure hill climb event.
If you drive to the event, you can park in the Denbies Vineyard main Car Park
will open at 07:30. Please place your rider number on the back of your jersey and the small laminated number plate on the front of your handlebars. Please return both your jersey number and laminated number plate after you finish the event.
Riders with static rollers can warm up either in the car-park or the area near the start line.
Alternatively, riders can cycle out from the Denbies car-park to the A24, though take care as Denbies car-park can be busy.
Riders will be able to ride the course in advance of the event on the day, but will need to clear the course by 8.15. Please ride the course cautiously and descend slowly. There may be a small amount of car traffic, as marshals and equipment are ferried up the course.
The course is the paved road (part rough concrete, part tarmac) starting above Denbies B&B to just short of Denbies House. The course is approximately 1.7km long, with an average gradient of just under 6%.
Portaloos will be located near the the start line – priority for riders competing please.
Drinks, snacks and meals can be purchased in the main Denbies Conservatory restaurant, open from 9.30 onwards
