The South Downs in Mid-Sussex pretty much has it all. Whether it’s pretty and unspoilt views you’re after, fast and long-ranging trails or challenging climbs, there’s something for everyone in the Wiggle Devils Rampage MTB ride.
As the name suggests, it’s not an easy ride by any means but it’s wholly enjoyable all the same. If you’re up to the challenge of some steep off-road sections, you’ll be given just reward with a series of exciting and action-packed downhill drops.
This route starts out from Plumpton Racecourse, right at the foot of the South Downs, so you’ll be thrown straight into the action.
The Sussex Downs hilltops are vast and sprawling, also varying dramatically in gradient and you’ll find sudden drops just as common as cruel climbs. As you head south, you’ll swap open fields for the Sussex Border Path for a while, but before long you'll be heading back north to the hills of the South Downs, and the infamous Ditchling Beacon.

Online pre-entry is the easiest way of entering and saves £5.00 per person vs. entering on the day.

Please note: If an event reaches its capacity we will have to close the event to riders wanting to enter on the day. It is therefore best to pre enter online to avoid disappointment!
On the day entries are available at all our events as long as the event has not sold out prior to the event day. On the day entries are subject to an additional £5.00 per person surcharge.

Wiggle Customers will not be able to receive any loyalty discounts on the day.
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 the Website. 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.
SportivePhoto will be taking pictures of all riders at this event. Please visit www.sportivephoto.com once you have taken part in the event to view your photos!
