The Classic is the hardest and longest of the three rides on the Burgess Hill Springtime Classic Cyclosportive.

An excellent event to prepare for the cycling season ahead. The course is hard for this time of the year and should only be attempted by experienced cyclists able to ride for four or more hours over hilly terrain.
With a distance of 72 miles (114km) and 5469 ft (1667 meters) of climbing the route will test riders climbing ability and endurance.

There are four feed stations on this route to help riders around the course which has many hills like Pillow Mounds Hill, Kidds Hill, Groombridge hill, and the infamous 20% Cobb Lane hill.
