Leith Hill, RideLondon-Surrey Classic 2013

If you're KOM hunting in the south east of England, chances are you'll find it a lot harder to get close to the top of the leaderboards with the huge numbers of cyclists on the roads of London and Surrey.

Indeed, six of the 10 most popular Strava segments in the UK in 2015 are in Surrey, with three of the other four in London.

Sorry to those who live outside the South East, the segment that rounds out the top 10 is in Sussex, which just goes to show the boom in popularity for cycling in the Home Counties.
