THE ROULEUR

A Rouleur in cycling terms is a rider that is a consistent all rounder, who can ride well over most terrians. The Beacon Rouleur is a cyclosportive route that suits such a rider. Tough large climbs in the beginning like Ditchling Beacon and the Bear Road in Brighton and faster flat sections later on make up the Beacon Rouleur cyclosportive route.

DITCHLING BEACON

A famous climb in the area Ditchling Beacon arrives early on all three of the routes of the Beacon Rouleur. Just 5 miles from the start riders find themselves climbing the famous Ditchling Beacon. With fresh legs this is achieveable for most, albeit at various speeds. The climb is 0.9 miles long and climbs 565 ft. It has an average gradient of 9.3% with a maximum gradient of 24.9%.

Three Great routes on this cyclosportive offer a tough start before things get much faster !
On this cyclosportive you are advised to take it easy at the beginning especially if you are doing the long route.

Some really great roads in East Sussex are used for this event.
