BEYOND SUSSEX SPORTIVE

In this early season sportive we have fantastic riding in Sussex, through tree-covered lanes, stunning flat sections along with some undulating terrain and wonderful scenery for all the routes.

Covering roads that can be thoroughly enjoyed at this time of year. We have worked hard to take this route through some beautiful countryside that can be enjoyed by all, at the same time minimising the climbing where we can so everyone can enjoy a day in the saddle.

With aid stations and on course support, you ride, we will help you finish.

Starting and finishing in Ardingly.
