Hampshire Hills Beach Cruiser

Hampshire Hills Beach Cruiser

August 11 2018
West Sussex, South East, UK

A new twist on the classic sportive, the Hampshire Hills Beach Cruiser is a sportive with the atmosphere of a summer club run to the beach. Starting from Petersfield in hte shadow of Butser Hill, the route winds you up over the mighty South Downs, then sweeps through the pick of the twisting country lanes to the south coast, delivering you to the sea front at Hayling Island.

Once you hit the beach, you can relax, enjoy the sea breeze, and grab a bite and cuppa at the beach-side checkpoint. Our team will be there with a support station that acts as the finish for the Short ride, or your midway checkpoint for the Full Route. That’s it; if you rode the Short Route, your riding is done. All that’s left to do is to enjoy the beach, maybe arrange to meet family or friends to spend a few hours before giving you a lift back to your car or back home.

If you’re riding the Full Route, after your beach stop you’ll get back on the bike to make your way back up country to finish at the event base at Petersfield (where you started). In the spirit of the chilled theme of the day, we’re being nice to you though. The route back is a little shorter and more direct than the ride out; nobody wants to have the bulk of their ride in front of them after a cake stop or lunch at the beach! Oh, and yes you will be timed for this ride, but the time you spend at the beach stop won’t be included in your overall time. Just make sure that you check in and out through the timing station and we’ll deduct your beach time from your ride time in the final results. After all, a good day on the bike means only being in a hurry when you want to be, right?
