Overview

2021 will see the inaugural cycle sportives at the Hever Castle Festival of Endurance on Saturday 3 July. The two routes - 180K and 95K - are a wonderful mix of recognised local cycling classics. Both are absolute corkers of routes fit for champions but have longer cut-off times than normal to suit those that just fancy a great day out in the countryside.

180K

This foray into the South Downs National Park, via the world famous opera house at Glyndebourne, sees you all the way to the South Coast at Eastbourne. The return north passes through the High Weald and as far East as the historic town of Battle, beautiful views through Ashdown Forest. Wearing your Geo Tracks GPS tracking device, your friends and family can follow your progress online as well as joining you at pre-planned stopping points on the course. You will pass well stocked feed stations, have a signed route to follow and pass through some of the most stunning scenery in the South East.

90K

The circuit sees you climbing up and over the Ashdown Forest at its western end on your way south before descending into and crossing over the River Ouse. Wearing your Geo Tracks GPS tracking device, your friends and family can follow your progress online as well as joining you at pre-planned stopping points on the course. You will pass well stocked feed stations, have a signed route to follow and pass through some of the most stunning scenery in the South East.

It was a fun event to do with friends but felt the route could be improved to avoid busy roads as these became tedious in the middle. I'd really recommend it for beginners who would like to push themselves to do a long event as the food stations made it really manageable. The...Read full review

This was my first ever cycling event, so I have nothing to compare it to, but I loved the day and felt that it was very beginner-friendly. The course was well marked and the route was beautiful!    The aid stations could have been equipped more vegan and gluten-free f...Read full review
