Event Overview

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
