THE ETAPE DU SUSSEX CYCLOSPORTIVE 2022
The Etape du Sussex Tour, Route at 50 miles is the shortest route of this cyclosportive. It’s a good route for those whose endurance levels aren’t yet up to the longer routes of this cyclosportive. That said it’s still a big challenge taking in all the major hills of the longer routes with over 3740 ft of climbing as well as notable local iconic climbs like Cob Lane to climb. So some training is needed to enjoy this route.
The longest climb on all 3 routes doesnt have a name as such although you might have some suggestions when climbing it or when it end’s up on the High Road of the Ashdown Forest.
Starting at Witches lane 13 miles into the route the road starts to gradually move upwards reaching the top of the ascent only after 6 miles have been done fighting gravity.
The 2nd major climb into the route is the Priory Road Climb.
