The Brighton Breezy Aims to Raise Money for Albion In The Community

by Holly Blades

On Sunday 23rd July Albion in the Community, the official charity of Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club, are hosting a one day cycling event across the Sussex countryside. The Brighton Breezy sportive provides three signed routes of 40km, 75km and 110km. 

The event is run by Albion in the Community with help from their friends at Brighton CTC. Entry is £25 for the shortest route, £30 for the moderate route and £35 for the longest route - all of the profits for this event go to supporting Albion in the Community and their award-winning work across Sussex. 


The Brighton Breezy has three routes, all departing and finishing at the American Express Community Stadium, home of Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club. Departing from the stadium each route heads along the A27 cycle path and into the historic town of Lewes. Here riders leave the busy roads and travel through typical countryside paths towards Barcombe Mills and Ringmer. 

Inside Ringmer the refreshment point is reached, based inside the village scout hut, where a wide range of refreshments and facilities are available. As the 75km route continues on, the scenery changes from open plains with big sky views of the South Downs to wooded lanes and small rises heralding the approaching Weald.


For those attempting the longer routes there is a second refreshment stop in the scenic village hall of Waldron including further refreshments before the 110km riders head further into the hilly wooded lanes of the Weald, before heading back to the stadium. All riders then return through the villages of Glyndebourne and Lewes before heading back towards the final finishing point at the Amex stadium. The three routes allow accessibility for all types of riders experience and non-experienced.
