The route, being mostly off-road, has a few on road sections, most of them in its first part inside the M25. After that it crosses the Surrey Hills, then takes the Downs Link for about 40 km, and finally climbs to the South Downs before finishing in Brighton.
The whole route is flat except for three climbs 200 meters each. The first hill (km 50) is easily done as you´re still full of energy. A few kilometers later you reach the second hill (km 57), which is a little tougher as your legs start to feel tired. And the best thing of the third hill (km 109) is that you know it´s the last climb of the day and you´re not far from crossing the finish line in Brighton.
That day we had to battle against a strong headwind (South wind), if you can choose a calm day to do the ride you will enjoy it even more.
A big advantage of participating in an event like this is you don't need to carry much weight with you, as you are provided with water, fruits, peanuts and cereal bars at several stops.
