Venue: The All England Jumping Course, Hickstead, Haywards Heath, West Sussex, BN6 9HR

The Orro Sussex Downs Classic offers a pretty and scenic bike ride around the less travelled West Sussex countryside, dashing between the small country villages. Enjoy the route as it takes you through the winding lanes in the High Weald AONB.

Short route - After climbs and descents of the High Wealds, you’ll enjoy cycling through the quaint towns and villages of Copsale, Maplehurst, Partridge Green and Shermanbury. As you hit the back roads, look out for the various wildlife including huge Kites, deer and smaller creatures of the countryside.

Standard route - On top of the short route, you’ll have the climbs into the South Downs National Park around Ditching and Plumpton before hitting the High Wealds, to charge up and down the beautiful Ardingly Resivour. Views from here can let you see over the south coast towns to the coast and even more of the South Downs National Park.

Epic route - Enjoy all the standard route has to offer as well as an extra loop of fun descents and long, but rewarding climbs in the heart of the High Wealds. The views from this area are amazing as you cycling around the High Wealds and enjoy the beauty of Hindleap Warren Forest.

Orro Bikes: Creating Stylish Bikes for Serious Riders

At Orro we engineer, build and test premium road bikes in Ditchling, the heart of Sussex. Working with only the best aluminium and carbon fibre materials, we utilise cutting-edge manufacturing technologies and apply the finest paints and finishes.

We also pride ourselves in working with the world’s best component manufacturers to deliver a final product that is unparalleled. And for the discerning individual, we have created the Signature Series, a range of boutique bikes with customisable finish options and top-level componentry. Visit www.orrobikes.com for more info.

Fancy helping out at an event?

We always welcome volunteers at our events so if you fancy joining the crew for the day and helping out, please get in touch. You will be rewarded for your efforts and will be able to choose an event to ride for free. If this particular event is fully staffed, you can always put your name down for another event. More information about volunteering can be found on our Volunteer at a Cycling Event page, along with the link to the online application form.

Times and Awards
Times and Awards

Although all our rides are non competitive events (i.e. not races), most people still like to know how well they've done. With this in mind we will time each participants ride. When you complete your ride your time will be calculated and these timings, along with the timing award you achieved, will be displayed on our results page. Each rider will receive a timing award of either; bronze, silver or gold, depending on their average speed. Of course, some riders aren't bothered about all these awards and just cycle for the experience and stunning scenery.
