The Big Dipper

Date & Location

Herstmonceux, East Sussex

Organiser’s Description

The first and second editions of this event really lived up to their names! And last year we had such good comments that we couldn’t not repeat it. The Big Dipper - 100 miles, heads East to Tenterden and on into Kent before heading South to Appledore, Peasmarsh, past The Plough on the Udimore Road, and then up the infamous Battery Hill, after which you head North again to Battle, past another Plough pub in Westfield, and then the finish, but not before a sharp sting in the tail at Wartling. The Little Dipper - 66 miles, dodges Kent, but not many of the climbs, so whichever ride you do you'll have earned your medal at the finish.
