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.

The Springtime Classic Cyclosportive event has it all. It really is the must do cycling event to test your early season fitness on the bike.
There's three routes to choose from and you can change which route you do on the day.

The challenge of PUNCHEUR is not a long list of nasty climbs, neither is it mega-endurance. The challenge is to keep up a good tempo along rolling roads over 65 miles, and to keep your rhythm up the short climbs and drags.
Dont take it lightly, however! Your endurance level will be tested, and you will get a good idea of your early-season fitness, and where your strengths and weaknesses are.
With the warmer longer days upon us this ride will enable you to stretch your goals and really push yourself to the limit.

Setting off from the village of Lingfield you will be out in the country before you know it, as all three routes head east towards Edenbridge with gentle rolling roads to get those legs warm for whats about to come.
Once those legs are warm, you will then enter into the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty as you will pass through wooded, rolling hills. A few miles past Cowden Pound, at the 26-mile mark, the Short route riders split off from the other two routes and loop back towards the finish at Lingfield.
The Standard and Epic route riders travel further south towards Ashdown Forest, passing low lying meadows to reveal the Weir Wood Reservoir, a stunning 1.5-mile long stretch of water built in 1951. From here the Epic riders enjoy a southern loop dropping down towards Horsted Keynes for a pit stop. Once refuelled, riders will take on the steep climbs around Ardingly to reach the top of Turners Hill - the name says it all!
Re-joining the Standard route, riders will be glad to give their legs a rest on the downhill sections heading back to the venue. But remember to leave enough in the tank for the last climb of the day, between Felcourt and Dormansland, before grabbing yourself a well-deserved medal.
