RIDE IT is a series of non-competitive cycle events taking place across the country and aimed at riders of all abilities. At every ride you’ll find a choice of fully waymarked routes, well stocked feed stations sponsored by High 5 Sports Nutrition, mechanical and sweeper van support if things go wrong, electronic chip timing to record your ride and a finishers medal waiting for you at the end.
Our sportive cross course includes a mix of lanes, cycle tracks and bridleways so is suitable for MTB, cyclocross, adventure road bikes with tyres that can handle some off road riding. The route takes us away from Ardingly past Weir Wood Reservoir before we join the gravel tracks of the Forest Way into East Grinstead. For here we pick up some more gravel cycle tracks taking us along the Worth Way to the outskirts of Crawley before picking up a series of bridleways through Tilgate Forest and Oldhouse Warren. We continue on through Balcombe then it’s a picturesque skirt around the edge of Ardingly Reservoir before returning to the finish.
