Route description
Route description

The route covers 55 miles from south London to Madeira Drive on the Brighton seafront.

Once out of London, competitors will predominantly cycle along quiet country lanes passing through Mitcham, Carshalton, Chipstead, Banstead and Haywards Heath before taking on the challenge that is Ditchling Beacon – a mile long climb to the top of the South Downs where you will be rewarded with amazing views and a water break!

From here, you will cycle downhill the last few miles onto Brighton seafront.

At mile 30, just after the midpoint, entrants will be treated to a free lunch buffet of hot and cold food at Tulley's Farm (with vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free options too).
