Story by Crosby from Walton-on-Thames, United Kingdom, submitted on 19/01/2014
Early day in my return to cycling I took this as a shortcut back to the A246, which for a wheezy newbie was a mistake; ran out of puff 2/3 of the way up then the road was too steep to get clipped in!

On a nice day it''s not unusual to see a couple of "get off and walk" characters (as I was...) so this climb is a proper challenge for the occasional rider. However provided you don''t beast it up the first KM (before the rail bridge) any reasonably regular cyclist should appreciate that while this climb is sure steep, the top come soon enough!

Starts off fairly easily but gets very difficult as you encounter the hair pin bend, then it is just a struggle to keep going as your lungs feel like they are about to burst!

Story by Chris from Dorking, United Kingdom, submitted on 25/08/2011
I live near Leith Hill and reguarly ride the climbs in the Surrey Hills and so I know that Whitedown is very deceptive.

The real climb does not start until you are part the railway bridge and then the road turns to the left in a hairpin and ramps up quickly. Take it easy and dont push too hard and youll have a good climb if you pace.

The road then turns to the right and my Garmin begins saying all kind of high gradients. You climb past an only Pill Box gun emplacement on your left and youre about a third the way up.

You cant see the top because youre hedged in all around by overhanging trees and very high banks that are beautifully covered in lush green moss.

This road is narrow and cars use it as a cut through from Guildford to Dorking and vise versa.

As you reach the next bend you are over half way but youre still not sure you are at the top. Only in the last 50 meters or so are you sure youre there and your heart thanks you for it.

I try to surge the last bit. There is a felled tree about another 50 meters or so further on from the climb which is good sit on and have a drink or chat before enjoying turning round and descending to take on the Leith Hill climb on the opposite side of the A25.

Enjoy.I love the Surrey Hills
