Route description
Route description

Both the long and medium routes start from Liphook and will be fully marked. The route will start on easy terrain before tackling some challenging climbs throughout. The medium route will turn off at Butser Hill and will continue to include lots of rewarding climbs with spectacular views.

The long route will take you all the way onto the South Down ridge with more than a 12% gradient in some places. Both routes will get your heart pumping as you will be climbing for most of the ride.
