THE BURGESS HILL 2018 RUMBLE CYCLOSPORTIVE

DATE OF EVENT: 05/08/18

 

THE BEAST ROUTE

93 MILES

The Burgess Hill Rumble Beast Route is the hardest and longest route of the Burgess Hill Rumble and should only be attempted by experienced cyclists.

 

The route is considered by many that have done it as the hardest cyclosportive route in the Southeast, UK.

With a distance of over 93 miles (149km) and 7388 feet of climbing you might think the course designers at SRS Events are determined on making you earn those event awards at the end of the ride.

 

But we at SRS Events believe a little bit of manageable adversity is what serious experienced cyclosportive riders are looking for in a cyclosportive route, its just not fun if it's easy.

Linking the South Downs with the North Downs the route offers riders a scenic route which takes riders up iconic climbs such as Yorks Hill, Toys Hill, and Kidds Hill.
