A choice of 3 great routes to choose from. The Classic (71 miles) will test climbing ability and endurance and should only be attempted by those able to ride for 4+ hours over hilly terrain. The Challenge (54 miles) avoids the hardest of the hills but will test fitness and determination, and the Tour (36 miles), though short in miles, still has a few testing hills.

SRS Burgess Hill Springtime Classic routes

The Classic is the hardest and longest of the three rides on the Burgess Hill Springtime Classic event. An excellent event to prepare for the cycling season ahead. The course is hard for this time of the year and should only be attempted by experienced cyclists able to ride for four or more hours over hilly terrain. With a distance of 71 miles (114km) and 1653 metres of climbing the route will test riders endurance. There are four feed stations on this ride to help riders around the course and up the many hills like Pillow Mounds Hill, Kidds Hill,Groombridge hill and the infamous Cob Lane hill. Riders will also have the chance to relish the many descents this testing course offers.

The Spring Challenge ride follows the route of the Springtime Classic Cyclosportive but takes a detour to avoid the hardest of the hills of our Classic route. This detour reduces the distance of the Springtime Challenge ride to 53 miles (85.8km). This is a sporting course with 1193 meters of climbing that will challenge your fitness and determination.
It's a good event to do to get into condition for future summer cyclosportives. This route is achievable for most club standard cyclists, but needs work as it passes through some tough terrain and some tough climbs such as Pillow Mounds Hill and Kidds Hill which is know locally amongst the cycling fraternity as “The Wall”, there is also the infamous short but steep Cobb Lane Hill.
With the scenic rolling roads of Ashdown Forest we feel sure you’ll enjoy this ride.

The Tour ride is the shortest ride of the Springtime Classic at 35 miles.
Although short in miles, this is still a good test for beginners and those who are coming back to full fitness.
The Tour route avoids the major climbs of the two other longer routes. It has less of the strength sapping pain inducing gradients abundant on the longer routes, but this is not to say that the Tour ride hasn't got a few hills to test your ability.
The route has three main climbs to test riders climbing ability, they are :-
Pillow Mounds Hill
Cob Lane Hill
Ardingly Reservoir Hill

This ride has to make sense for many cyclists who wish to enter the Burgess Hill Springtime cyclosportive to test their fitness amongst other entrants.
