May's Maximum Speed Challenge

Updated: Jul 6, 2021

Maximum Speed obtained during a 200m segment between Chertsey and Sunbury.

The segment is completed by cycling back on yourself, i.e. towards Sunbury.

One for the heavyweight contenders of the Waldies... Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.


Directions to get there. This is how to get there, you will be completing the segment on the way back;


Head through Sunbury past Pro Stage Europe on your right (with the big Roman acting mask)

Straight through the next roundabout where it is left to Walton and straight to Chertsey.

Straight through the next mini roundabout where it is left to Walton bridge or straight to Chertsey.


Finally, straight through the 3rd roundabout where it is left to Shepperton straight to Chertsey.

At the top of the rise, there is a left turn on Chertsey Road take care of traffic and use this to turn around to head back on yourself down the road (called Renfree Way) where you came from, back towards the roundabout.


Find the 50 miles an hour sign slam it in your biggest gear and start your wind up.


At the first bike icon in the bike lane GO GO GO! - the start of the 200m segment.


By the next bike icon, you are halfway through the effort and you better be giving it laldy (for everyone apart from Mei-Ling that means with great energy and vigour).


On the next bike icon, you have finished - Well done!


Here is what it looks like in real life.
