Info for Riders:
The rouleur cyclist is a consistent all rounder who can ride well over most terrains.

It's time to test your Rouleur qualities on this Cyclosportive

The clue as they say is in the name, as the Beacon Rouleur pushes its participants pain threshold to the max by taking all riders up the famous climb of Ditchling Beacon at 230m in height.
There will be some that will be thinking of taking the walk of shame when they get to the Beacon, but with fresh legs most should get up this testing climb with the confidence that things are flatter for the rest of the ride.
That said Classic Route riders should be aware there are some testing little lumps on route to drain the legs of any energy left, halfway into the Classic Route.

British Cycling members can get 10% off the Standard entry price when they enter via the British Cycling entry page.

All riders taking part receive a Continental 24 Race 700c inner tube rrp £4.99 and a free meal after the ride.
See the SRS Events website for details.

The Beacon Rouler has three great routes of vaious distances to test riders ability and fitness levels on the bike. 

The clue is in the name as they say with the Beacon Rouleur ramping up the pain threshold of most rides, as all route climb the famous climb of Ditchling Beacon at 230m in height.

There will be some that will be thinking of walking when they get to the Beacon,  but with fresh legs most should get up this testing climb with the confidence that things are flatter for the rest of the ride at least for the Challenge and Tour route riders. 

Riders can increase their average speed to potentially gain a gold level standard ride on the flatter parts of the course after Ditchling Beacon but those riding the Classic Route should be ware there are some shorter testing hills to drain the legs of any energy around the village of Brighling, halfway into the Classic Route. 

Ample feed stations are available on this Cyclosportive with all feed Stations having access to toilets. The Classic Route @ 89miles  has 6 potential places where riders can stop for refreshments. @ 21, 29, 42, 61, 67 and 75 miles. 

The Three Routes are :-

 

Classic Route 89 miles 

Challenege Route 63 miles  

Tour Route 50 miles 

 

With all the usual great support from SRS Events for entrants this is another cycling event not to miss.
