On 25th March 2012 the inaugural HotChillee Sportive will take place. The event kicks off from the bottom of the Olympic Road Race Hill 'Box Hill' in Dorking, which provides a stunning backdrop to the event HQ. This event rides on some of the best cycling terrain in the south east, and in the summer the 2012 Olympic Road Race will pass through this area.     

The HotChillee Sportive is an event which can be described as a 'Testing Downs Double' as it takes in both the North and South Downs. Starting in the North Downs before heading south through the flatter 'lower weald' and on to the South Downs National Park before finally turning at the famous Goodwood race course and heading North again back towards the HQ and some challenging climbs before the finish. The epic route is a real challenge, but despite that it is still an achievable challenge if you have a reasonable level of fitness.

Two different ride lengths 115 miles (180 km) & 66 miles (100 km) allow you to pick your challenge for a great day out. Whichever route you chose you can guarantee to be presented with delightful examples of what this area of outstanding natural beauty has to offer cyclists - terrific hills will get the legs pumping and amazing descents which will send the heart racing.

The HQ is in touching distance of London and with Start / Finish in close proximity to a mainline station, and good road links to the rest of the south east. Like all HotChillee events there will be a great atmosphere, amazing camaraderie amongst fellow riders as well as good facilities including toilets/free parking/showers/refreshments and most importantly an amazing course.  TheTriTouch, HotChillee's Sports Massage Partner, will also be there to provide massages afterwards. All photographs taken will be available to all partipants to view and download for free.

So all you need to do is Register, turn up and ride!

Registration is open from 07:00 to 08:30

Event starts from 08:30 to 09:30
