The South Downs National Park is England’s newest national park, stretching across 3 counties, from Winchester in the West to Eastbourne in the East. Our Challenge focuses on the chalk cliffs and surrounding trails in the East, as we ride along the South Downs Way, and hike over the famous Seven Sisters!

Arrival at the hotel in time for registration and bike fitting. Dinner at your leisure.


The day begins with a safety briefing at the hotel, before heading off in our groups along a choice of routes into the National Park. The views are amazing, and terrain gently rolling, although don’t let that fool you as the elevation for the ride steadily increases!

The transition area signals the end of the riding section, and our support crew will be on hand to serve you some well-earned refreshments to replenish your energy and prepare for the next stage of the challenge – the hike!

The hike itself will take around 4 or 5 hours, where we first head south along a valley path, before gently climbing up towards the Seven Sisters Country Park. The sea air fills our lungs as we turn back towards Eastbourne and tackle the chalk cliffs of the Seven Sisters.

Finally, after 19 leg-busting kilometres, we finish by the beach in Eastbourne! It’s then a short (flat!) walk to the hotel, in time for a celebratory drink and well-deserved evening meal!


Breakfast is taken at your leisure, before departing for home.
