Tour de Weald Cyclosportive
We are concentrating on the Rumble 31st August
& the Brighton to Brighton in 28th September.
The Tour de Weald is the 4th event in the SRS Events 2012 Burgess Hill Cyclosportive Series.
There are Four routes of varying difficulty to test most abilities, they are listed to the right on this page please click on the routes listed here to find out more about the individual routes.
All the routes of the Tour de Weald enjoy the quite roads of the Kent and Sussex countryside. The Tour de Weald is a must for any Cyclosportive athlete wishing to test their abilities on the bike.
The Classic ride at 127 miles must be regarded as one of, if not the longest and hardest cyclosportives in the South East. This event is used by many who wish to test themselves for future continental Cyclosportives later in the Summer.
Last year many riders who were riding the L'Etape du Tour Cyclosportive in France used this event to test their legs.

This is the long one! WARNING! You should only attempt this ride if your capable ! It's 127 miles long and too many hills in our opinion, but look at it this way what goes up must come down!
This is a major test of any rider and not to be taken lightly, finishing this ride is a considerable achievement. Mind you if you can't get up one of the first major hills called Castle Hill you might want to consider taking that turning for the Challenge route while you have the chance !
Those that finish this ride will be eligible to reduced entry to the Burgess Hill Rumble*.
A broom wagon is available
for those who fail in their attempts!
The mark of any good cyclist is being able to complete 100 miles.
The mark of a good cyclosportive rider we believe is being able to finish the Tour de Weald Challenge route and still have enough energy to lift spoon to mouth as you tuck into all the free food at the HQ.
The Tour Route is not whimping out it's still 65 miles long and this is no easy ride, enjoyable yes but it will take the average Cyclosportive rider 5 hours to complete.
The Kermesse is great 35 mile course for riders who wish to ride maybe their first cyclosportive event or don't want to blow a gasket riding in the other routes of the Tour de Weald. Relish this lovely picturesque route and kick back for a while at the feed station, enjoy!
It's not all about pushing your body to it's limits !
Or is it ?
