Event Overview

The GSD Giant sweeps through the picturesque lanes of West Sussex and Hampshire in support of a locally-based charity, the AGSD-UK. Setting out from the magnificent Goodwood Racecourse the route circumnavigates the South Downs National Park between Petworth in the east and the Meon Valley in the west; passing through some of the prettiest villages and hamlets in the South of England. Cycling by green rolling pastures, ancient woodlands, river valleys and wetlands within one of Britain’s most accessible breathing spaces you’ll experience an exhilarating and challenging sportive and you'll be helped to recuperate afterwards with hot food and refreshments.
