EASTBOURNE CYCLING FESTIVAL CYCLOSPORTIVE Sunday 22nd May 2011

With all the Razzmattaz of Eastbourne Cycling Festival this cyclosportive event will start and finish on Grande Parade on Eastbourne's glorious seafront. Three amazing routes have been created by the planning team at SRS Events.

An event not to be missed :!:

Classic Route 106 miles
Challnege Route 80 miles
Tour Route 50 miles

From the start on the seafront all riders have to conquer the climb of Upper Dukes Drive which takes riders out of Eastbourne. With its Alpine style switch back turns Upper Dukes Drive hints at what is to come on the rest of the routes.
The Hills on the longest (Classic) route has climbs like Groombridge Hill and the Infamous Kidds Hill which many local cyclist call "The Wall". These hills should do a good job of testing each rider and machine against the forces of gravity.

All the usual high standards of support for riders from SRS Events which regular riders of SRS Events have become accustom to. All routes travel through some stunning Sussex countryside for riders to enjoy not least the Classic riders who have over 2340 meters of climbing to do but also some great descents as well. :)
