RIDE IT is a series of non-competitive cycle events taking place across the country and aimed at riders of all abilities. At our rides you’ll find a choice of fully waymarked routes, well stocked feed stations sponsored by High 5 Sports Nutrition, mechanical and sweeper van support if things go wrong, electronic chip timing to record your ride and a finishers medal waiting for you at the end.
In additional to our usual route distances at our RIDE IT Brighton MTB event we're also offering an extra challenging 50 mile endurance route option for those that want to test their fitness and endurance.
All the rides start from Plumpton College in the heart of the South Downs which is ideally situated for a great day in the saddle. Straight away we head up, climbing to an impressive ridge line on the South Downs high above the valley. Quick descents and zig-zag climbs follow as we head towards Devils Dyke and Truleigh Hill. After refuelling near Truleigh Hill 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 final deserved descent to the finish.Sportives
