DATE OF EVENT: 31/08/14






The Burgess Hill Rumble Classic ride is the hardest and longest of the Burgess Hill Rumble and should only be attempted by experienced cyclists. With a distance of over 92 miles (147km) and 6132 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 friendly scenic route which takes riders up iconic climbs such as Yorks Hill, Toys Hill, and Kidds Hill.
