box hill and the surrounding hills are not that difficult riding fixed. i'm trying the new route above and the only thing that will make me swap between gears and fixed is whatever other people are riding. and if it's 50miles or less. longer distances i prefer geared. (i'm on 72gi)
went round limpsfield/cudham/downe area yesterday on gears, having ridden out to the hillclimb there on fixed i think i would choose gears. the hills seem steeper if not that long.
