43mile/69km, 850m ascent

Fancy escaping the smog of the city and riding to the seaside? Then join us for this 43mile / 69km road ride from South London to Brighton, taking a quieter route than the official London to Brighton ride where possible and skipping the more urban bits of London, allowing us to enjoy the beauty of the Ashdown Forest and the Sussex countryside while having a good workout.

This ride is still relatively challenging with 850m of climbing and still including the legendary/dreaded Ditching Beacon climb on the approach to Brighton, so you should be reasonably fit to join this ride. We're aiming to have fun rather than fly around the route though and are more than happy to wait for people at the top of climbs so we can catch our breath & replenish our sugar levels before continuing.
