Now in its fourth year, the sportive formery known as The LongLeg will repeat all that was good in 2013 and will include a shorter course for those new to the world of cycling or just fancy a quick spin!

The following courses will be on offer: short: 43 miles (69k) medium 65 miles (109k), and long 80 miles (130k). All will follow the same route with split points along the way. Look out for the signs! Beware, the climbs on this sportive are tough and are not normally included in other cycling events, making this sportive a little different from the rest in the Surrey Hills! But don't fret, as also included is one of the best climbs in the area, that all distances will have to negotiate! The medium and long courses will head south on the rolling roads to the Surrey and Sussex border before turning north. The serious climbing will then start...The medium course will ascend Leith Hill once while the long course will do it twice! The best of the climbs will be saved until last when Bar Hatch rears its ugly head...

Before the climbing starts and after all the climbing finishes, make sure to refuel at the feed station with Aunt Debbie's famous homemade cakes and GU energy gels and drink or water. Feedstations will be based at strategically placed village halls along the way, so toilet facilities and porter-loos will be available.

You will be supported by roaming First Aid patrols, mobile mechanics and marshals on motorbikes. Whilst we have mechanics on the routes, we ask you to carry your own basic repair kit your (puncture repair kit, and chain tool and power links) so you can get yourself going and not have to wait on the side of the road.
