for Brighton 50/100 Bike Ride for Marie Curie Cancer Care as your favourite British event.

A choice of 100 mile or 50 mile routes starting and finishing in Preston Park in Brighton.
From the start at Preston Park the ride heads east along the South Coast to Newhaven then cuts inland following the river Ouse as it slices through the South Downs to historic Lewes, the county town of East Sussex. The 50 mile route cuts across at Ringmer whilst the 100 mile route follows Cuckmere River back to the coast road for a cliff top climb up to Beachy Head. What goes up must come down and you'll be rewarded with a flat section through Eastbourne and across Pevensey Levels. It's then along the edge of the High Weald with its beautiful countryside and choppy hills to Ringmer where the routes rejoin. Both the 50 and 100 mile route cross the Ouse into the Low Weald before heading west below the ridge of the South Downs to Hurstpierpoint. One final push past the 'Devil's Dyke' and its all downhill to the finish offering spectacular views over Brighton and the English Channel.
The route is all on road. Road or hybrid bikes recommended.
The ride starts at Preston Park, Brighton BN1 (off A23) at 7.00am and you can apply online or view more details on our website.
