RIDE IT is a series of road and off road cycle events that take place all over the UK. With over 80 events per year, no matter what type of bike you ride or how experienced a cyclist you are, we have rides to suit you from 15 mile fun rides to 100 mile plus epic challenges. The rides are a great way to meet like-minded cyclists and to get out and explore some new routes whilst being supported by our dedicated events team.
Starting from Plumpton College in the heart of the South Downs, we’re ideally situated for a great day in the saddle. Straight away we head up, climbing to an impressive ridge line above the valley. Quick descents and zig-zag climbs follow as we head towards Devils Dyke and Truleigh Hill. After refuelling at the YHA we’re back onto the South Downs Way heading back towards event HQ. As the event centre nears, Long and Endurance riders continue past towards Lewes. More ups and downs follow as we navigate the trails around Balmer Down and Woodingdean. Those taking on the Endurance distance branch off at the 35 mile mark to enjoy a long descent to the coast. A challenging ascent awaits both Long and Endurance riders, before a deserved descent to the finish.
