The route

Once out of London you will cycle mainly on quiet lanes passing through Mitcham, Carshalton, Chipstead, Banstead and Haywards Heath before taking on the challenge that is Ditchling Beacon – a mile long climb to the top of the South Downs where you will be rewarded with amazing views and a water break! From there it’s downhill for the last few miles onto Brighton seafront.



By signing up for this challenge we ask that you commit to raising a minimum sponsorship of £150 per person.
