Event Overview

The Etape du Sussex embraces the wonderful countryside of East and West Sussex. The event starts and finishes in the centre of Burgess Hill. 

There are three stunning routes to choose from to test all abilities. All routes start off relatively flat before heading into the Ashdown Forest area where most of the major hills for all three routes reside. 

It's fair to say that the Etape du Sussex is a ride of two halves, with the first half being much hillier than the second half. This difference in terrain on route means that to set your best time on the Etape du Susse and get that coverted gold standard, you have to gauge where you personally can make up the most time.  Do you go fast in the first half, climbing the hills as quickly as possible and then hope you can keep the speed in your legs for the rest of the route. Or do you take it slightly easier on the hills in the first half, to be able to put your maximum effort into the flatter roads in the second half back to the finish ?
