Cycling Down Dementia South East

Event Venue: Lingfield Racecourse, Lingfield Park, Racecourse Road, Lingfield, Surrey, RH7 6PQ

The Cycling Down Dementia South East Sportive is back for the 2020 season and marks our final event of the year! With two routes to choose from you'll be making your way through Surrey into Kent. This late-season sportive will make you wish that the season isn't over. 

Don’t turn to the turbo trainer this winter before you’ve had the chance to get some final outdoor miles in at this late-season sportive. It's also a chance to make a difference for our charity partner, Alzheimer's Research UK, and the Cycle Down Dementia fundraiser. 

Starting out from Lingfield Racecourse, we start (as the sportives name suggests) heading south-east into the characteristic mosaic of medieval manors, farms and woodlands that make the High Weald AONB that it is. Be sure of some spectacular scenery and riding as you roll along within the pristine landscape of the High Weald AONB for the majority of your ride, not forgetting a brief stint in the neighbouring Surrey Hills with pretty English countryside villages dominating our route.

At Hartfield, our short ride turns north for a more gentle day in the saddle. For those keen to ramp up the mileage, continue east for a short time, after which our standard route veers north at Groombridge. There’ll be a chance to pick up your average pace as you return west, with a long wooded straight to Bells View Green.

Leave enough in the tank to tackle the climb out from Groombridge, before continuing to skirt Royal Tunbridge Wells. You’ll pedal as far as Bough Beech Reservoir, rewarding you with some humbling views across the water. Riders will continue to ride South for a time before looping across to Cowden Cross Station, where you'll point your handlebars towards home at Lingfield Racecourse.
