ADThe GSD Giant sweeps through the picturesque lanes of West Sussex and Hampshire in support of a locally-based charity, the AGSD-UK. Setting out from the magnificent Goodwood Racecourse the route circumnavigates the South Downs between Petworth in the east and Droxford in the west; passing through some of the prettiest villages and hamlets in the South of England. You'll cycle by green rolling pastures, ancient woodlands, river valleys and wetlands all within one of Britain's most accessible breathing spaces, the South Downs National Park. You'll experience an exhilarating and challenging sportive and you'll be helped to recuperate afterwards with hot food and refreshments. 

There are three routes available, 104, 76 and 44 miles. The roads are very undulating and there are a number of challenging climbs, including Old Winchester hill, Butser Hill and Harting Down.
