Races summary
Here's what races are available for Gravel Series: South Downs
Route information
All routes start at the industrial heritage museum at Amberley and make great use of the local bridleways in the form of the Monarch's Way and the South Downs Way.
With a varied terrain throughout each route including vehicle width farm tracks and some narrower flowing single trail tracks, one minute you'll be hauling yourself upwards and the next racing down to the base of the hills.
The gravel adventure will take you back to Amberley through the market town of Arundel, rolling past the medieval Arundel Castle at the top of the hill.
The route is challenging in sections, but nothing each rider can't handle if taken nice and steadily.
Long Route: 70km and 1280m ascent
Middle Route: 46km and 823m ascent
Short Route: 29km and 574m ascent
Rook Route: 15km and 283m ascent
