Starting from the well-equipped Plumpton Racecourse, right at the foot of the South Downs, it is in easy reach of Brighton, Haywards Heath, Lewes, Burgess Hill and the A27/ A23.

Whether it’s picturesque and unspoilt views you’re after, fast and long-ranging trails or a challenging climb, there’s something for everyone. There are two routes to choose from: 16.9km Epic route and a 9km Standard route. The routes start with a flattish 3.5km tree lined section to warm up the legs before a tough climb up to the South Downs Way. The climb will reward you with spectacular vistas over the Sussex countryside, the Seven Sisters Country Park and far reaching sea views.
