A 2-day bike packing adventure Brighton and back
MTB/CX/Gravel Bike | Fully Supported | Trails & single track | 250 km/153 miles | 75/80 miles per day
What is it about Brighton that draws all London cyclists to it, perhaps it’s the beautiful countryside you ride through, the wild open spaces of the Downs, or the draw of a well-earned dip in the sea, ice cream and a celebratory beer?
This fully supported weekend of amazing gravel bike packing will be a challenge, lovely riding, camping on the South Downs before heading back to London via Leith Hill.
This is a weekend adventure to the seaside and back, ride through the unspoiled Weald to the open vistas of the South Downs before dropping down to Brighton for a quick paddle.
Camp under the Downs before riding back to London by way of Leith Hill, don’t underestimate this ride, it’s a tough 2 days of incredibly rewarding gravel riding.
This is a fully supported ride with tried and tested GPX routes, feed stations during the days backed up with mobile mechanics and a broom wagon. Luggage transfer and campsite fees are included in the price, allowing you to concentrate on the fun bit – the riding!
