The routes

The 100 mile long South Downs Way National Trail follows the old routes and droveways along the chalk escarpment and ridges of the South Downs. With breathtaking views along the entire route and a finish location right on the seafront in Eastbourne, this challenge is not to be missed.

100 miles – taking in the full length of the south downs, this includes a total vertical climb of 10,000ft.

Mid length route – We’re just finalising the start location and exact distance for this route. It will still be a significant challenge and for the first time you too will be finishing in Eastbourne.

35 miles – It may be shorter in distance but it still has a significant climb, a high intensity climb bike ride.
The trails are not too technical but there are a lot of fast long descents which do require concentration.
