What is The Cobblemonster?

It’s London’s original and best Urbosportive!  Or in plainer terms, its a bike ride around a route marked out for you around some challenging terrain, right here in the capital.

We will start from Brixton Cycles Shop, SW9 6AG departing for cobbles and climbs aplenty before finishing at Brixton Jamm, SW9 6LH for food, drinks and BIG SCREEN PARIS-ROUBAIX and a raffle with BIG PRIZES.

Hope to see you all again on Sunday the 8th of April 2018 at Brixton Cycles.

Start
Brixton Cycles Shop, 296-298 Brixton Road, London SW9 6AG from 8am
Finish
Brixton Jamm, 261 Brixton Road, London SW9 6LH

Route

The route will depart from Brixton Cycles Shop and descend into the melee of the west end, blatting across some early secteurs of the Smokes’ Victorian pave before tucking into the east end and its myriad lanes of snaking cobbled nadgery.

We then cross the river start a series of LBCs (Lung Bursting Climbs) which increase in frequency toward the finish at Brixton Jamm and the finish.

The route is designed for riders of all abilities on all manner of bikes and encompasses a number of London Overground enabled bail out points for those that suffer with mechanical or physiological events. For some this will be the biggest bike ride they’ve ever taken on, for others it may seem like a gentle spin. We guarantee all riders will know they have ridden their bikes.

Without further ado….Here is the 2018 Cobblemonster route!

There are 29 cobbled sections and 5 lung busting hills.
