Description

Lewes Lament

Last year we thought Round 4 was too easy, so for 2018 we've made it longer and hillier. We're really going to push the limits of a day ride. Dust off the cross bike or MTB (no road bikes please) for this 180km run down to Lewes. We will do our best to keep you off them until we reach Lewes. The route is a link up of nearly 100 miles of bridleway, single-track, purpose built trails (and the odd bit of hike-a-bike) through Surrey and Sussex taking in some of the SDW and totals over 2500m of vertical gain.

This might just be the hardest of them all... Bring lights, bring food, bring proper clothing.

Trains run regularly back to London. And remember you have the bank-holiday Monday to recover!

This is NOT a road ride, it must be done on a cyclocross bike or MTB, both will have their merits and neither is superior. This is not a sportive or a road race, rather a hark back to the reliability trial, inspired by and in honour other equally outrageous endeavours!

Riders will meet and sign on at Four Boroughs in Crystal Palace with fine coffee, tasty toast and oats on offer. The route will then take you over the Surrey Hills and across the South Downs before dumping you ceremoniously into Lewes!

Again we are inviting people to enter a Team. When completing the entry first create and name your team or find it in the list if one of your teammates has already entered, then complete the registration. 3-6 team members are recommended (max of 8). You will be asked to register a team and then invite your team members!

Please note...

This is a reliability trial, not a road race or a sportive. This ride is unsupported and you are responsible for yourself and your equipment. There will not be signposts or a friendly marshall on every corner, there will not be a broom wagon and it will be hard!

You join us at your own risk and you are expected to ride in a safe, considerate manner, both to other road and trail users and other riders.
