THE ETAPE DU SUSSEX CYCLOSPORTIVE
Date of event 14th June 2015
The Etape du Sussex is a route to savour ! Hilly in its first half, riders will have to gauge their efforts and maybe save some energy for the flatter faster second half of the route.
Etape du Sussex doesn't have any extremely steep climbs, so no worries there. What the Etape du Sussex does have though is a mixture of long false flats with a mixture of smaller climbs especially in the beginning of the route. Some great descents are available too, most notably the descent of Kidds hill. Those that rode the Springtime Classic earlier in the year will no doubt be glad that this route is going down Kidds hill rather than up. The descent of Kidds Hill is rapid to say the least so take care on this descent, and enjoy!
The whole route is extremely beautiful and the majority of the route should be relatively car free. Please ride with due care and attention and follow the highway code at all times.
