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.

A big shout out to David, Adam, James and Sinclair who all provided GPX files for those of you who need GPS. Here is the file:-

Helpfully David also created a strava page which is here:-
