Finding the rhythm on any long climb such as Box Hill enables a bike rider to judge and monitor the energy and effort required to cycle to the top of the climb, as quickly and efficiently as possible. The cycling rhythm is a combination of bike speed, cadence and remaining energy levels. To put it another way, doing what you can with what you have left in the tank.
Not that you would consider Box Hill a long climb in cycling terms, far from it. But is one of the few climbs in southern England that needs a rhythm. If you get it wrong if you don't take the time to find the rhythm it has a way of finding you out.
