On the day

The map shows you where the HQ is at Ditchling Recreation Ground, Lewes Road, Ditchling (BN6 8TY). It’s a cricket pavilion. Puncheur HQ signs will help guide you in when you are near on the day.

We will send you detailed notes on what to expect a week or so before the event, but here is a flavour…

There is now very good free parking in Ditchling. The briefing notes we’ll send you just before the event will describe all the parking options.

Registration will open at 7.30 and close by 9.00am. Once parked or if you ride here, come inside the Pavilion and sign on and get gorgeous White Cloud coffee – no charge. You will be given a timing chip which we will activate before you start. The chip then needs to be beeped by the timing consoles at the start, to set the clock running, and again at the end to register your final time.

The Start

Riders will be set off as and when they are ready. You can ride alone or in groups – whatever suits you. First riders out will be at 7.45.

Feedstation – sponsored by Infinity Foods, Brighton

The Feedstation is located at 33 miles. It will have water, energy drink, and sumptuous food from Infinity Foods. Feel free to stay at the Feedstation as long as you want, but please keep clear of riders coming in and who want to grab and go! Don’t forget to register your chips in the timing console. Marshalls will be on hand to make sure this happens.

The Finish

On reaching the finish back in Ditchling, look out for the marshalls holding the timing consuls. They will register your timing chip and you will immediately receive your finishing time when you hand your chip in.

Back at HQ

Stow your bike then come and get a free cup of tea or coffee and a bowl of pasta (also no charge).

The bar will be open! (non-alcohol beers also available). Catch-up with the other riders…
