Nestled into the heart of the South Downs, Plumpton Racecourse is a superb venue with amazing views, facilities and a great atmosphere too! As an early season sportive the shorter ride length will ease you into the busy season, however, do not be fooled as this ride has a few hills to give your legs a early season test.
There are three routes to choose from 85 miles, 61 miles and 33 miles. The route starts by heading East on quiet rolling scenic Sussex lanes which create the perfect warm up. Now heading North you will encounter more undulating terrain, the climbs now start coming closer together. After the climb up to Waldron, you will be rewarded with the first feed station. From here the Epic riders head further North, their destination being Castle Hill, a true test of your winter training before looping back on some picturesque lanes to join up with the Standard route riders. Isfield is the sight for the second FeedStation where all three routes join up to wind their way back South to the Racecourse where you will receive a quality goody bag and a well-deserved medal! Post event refreshments and massages will also be waiting.
Highlights - Start Location, country lanes, three routes to choose from, full mechanical backup.
