Route checked the Mid Sussex Hillier today; lots of company going up Ditchling Beacon thanks to a sportive which does some of the same route for 10x the price  :o but wisely wusses Cob Lane  :'( I did ride up but a loooong breather stop half way

There's a slight diversion from the gpx near Goddards Green due to roadworks closing the short cyclepath section. There were also signs warning of a road closure from tomorrow on the section between Chailey (the former start) and Uckfield. Will check out on the day it may require a diversion via Barcombe a la AAA Milne

To be fair, the Puncheur sportive is a pretty good one as far as they go, fairly grass-roots and non-commercial using local businesses for the feed station.

Even so, once you've started audaxing there's not much reason to do a sportive!

See you on Saturday  :thumbsup:
