This very popular annual event, organised by the East Sussex Cycling Association, involves proving your reliability as a cyclist by covering a 50-mile course within a few minutes of your chosen time (3, 3½ or 4 hours) and takes the place of our regular club run this week.
This is a club competition, and a handsome shiny thing goes to the club that fields the most successful riders. In recent years, it’s been dominated by the Lewes Wanderers and Eastbourne Rovers, but we could, in theory, upset all that!
There are no feed stations on the ride, so please remember to bring enough food to get safely round the course.
This year’s event is being hosted by Brighton Excelsior and further details will follow once available.
The start of the ride will be in Shoreham-By-Sea.
