SPRINGTIME CLASSIC 2017
DATE OF EVENT: 19/03/17
The Spring Challenge ride follows the route of the Springtime Classic Cyclosportive but takes a detour to avoid the hardest of the hills of our Classic route. This detour reduces the distance of the Springtime Challenge ride to 53 miles (85.8km). This is a sporting course with 1193 meters of climbing that will challenge your fitness and determination.
It's a good event to do to get into condition for future summer cyclosportives. This route is achievable for most club standard cyclists, but needs work as it passes through some tough terrain and some tough climbs such as Pillow Mounds Hill and Kidds Hill which is know locally amongst the cycling fraternity as “The Wall”, there is also the infamous short but steep Cobb Lane Hill.
With the scenic rolling roads of Ashdown Forest we feel sure you’ll enjoy this ride.
The key event points are:
- Sign on time 7.45 until 8.45am
