Road Race 2015

By James (Event Organiser)

Ladies and Gents, Welcome to the Bec 2015 Open Road Race

Over the past couple of years we've been working on the course and format of the race, using different circuits primes and distances to create something fun and challenging. Last year was nearly right, but I think this year the scene is set for the perfect race. There no denying the roads in the Ashdown forest are perfect for bike racing. The surfaces are generally good, traffic light and there's lots of hills. 

The course starts from Groombridge (Village Hall, Groombridge TN3 9QY), and heads directly onto the Ladies Mile Circuit. This tight 4mile loop has a long drag of a hill, and three tight corners. After 10 laps there's a right turn and we continue up into the forest before swinging off up towards Crowborough. The Crowborough circuit features the climb of Marden's Hill, which is 1.4 mile long  and starts at 12% then averages out to 6%. We will loop round this second section 5 times before heading for the finish. 

The course is perfect for spectators, who can see the race every 10 minutes on the Ladies Mile and every 15 minutes on the Crowborough Circuit.
