This event has been rescheduled to August 8th (from its planned date of July 4th), and for this year only, will be restricted to just the 100km option. We have reached this decision through a full review of our options following the latest update to the government lockdown restrictions. For a full explanation of the reasons for this change, please see this blog post.

The South Downs Century kilometre option is 100km and almost 7,500ft (2270m) of climbing in a single day, 90% off road on classic South Downs chalk tracks. It is a physical test and a genuine epic, and the perfect preparation for taking on the full 100 mile South Downs Century in a future year!

Starting alongside the 100 mile event in Winchester, the 100km route finishes on top of Truleigh Hill above Shoreham; ideal for an easy pick up off the A27, or downhill all the way to the station to begin your journey home!

The South Downs Way: 100 miles or 100km

The South Downs Way has long been a rite of passage in mountain biking circles. And now this hundred mile ribbon of imposing chalk downland is the single day gravel challenge, and you can take it on with our unparalleled CX Sportive support.

Renowned as a supreme physical rather than technical challenge, the South Downs Way is the most high profile long distance MTB challenge that we have. But so much more, too. The huge climbs, sweeping descents and expansive coastal views make it a truly memorable ride in one of the most quintessentially beautiful parts of the British countryside.

CX Century brings you all of this in the ultimate South Downs event! An unforgettable experience and a monumental challenge  and endurance badge of honour!

CX Century is fully supported, from route marking to multiple feed and support stops, so all you have to do is concentrate on taking on this epic ride!
