Offering something for every level of cyclist, with four routes to choose from, ranging from 100 miles to 27 miles courses. The three longest distances are fully supported, with feed stations, medical assistance, mechanical support and even motorcycle outriders to ensure a premium feel, with every turn of the pedals. 

Starting and finishing at Uckfield Rugby Club, all routes dip into the wonderful South Downs National Park, where the Cool Route returns to Uckfield leaving the three longer routes to push eastwards, with the Champion and Epic routes exploring the rolling terrain of the High Weald AONB, before returning to the finish at Uckfield.

Yet another amazingly well-organised ride - thank you to everyone involved with putting on this event. The signage was amazing and all the helpers who had given up their Sunday to help were so friendly and helpful. This is an annual event (usually) for me and all our 14 club members riding that day thoroughly enjoyed it! Brilliant food and drink at the pit stops. The icing on the cake is that this ride helps others and you can get a Davina hug thrown in for good measure!

Great organisation and thoroughly enjoyed the route. I will definitely enter a future sportive!

Brilliant organisation, superb signage along the well thought out and beautiful route. The volunteers deserve lots of praise because without their help, cakes, jelly babies and other essential food we would not have got round.

What an outstanding day. Really well organised, friendly event.

What an amazing time we had. One of the best run events I've had the pleasure of doing. Meeting Davina and the rest of the organisers and event support crew. The fact that I have done this 4 times now is testimony to how good this is and how well attended it is. See you again next year.
