Big Tim’s Big Day Out 2019
Big Tim’s Big Day Out is a cycle sportive in memory of Tim Stevens and a way for all local South East cyclists to donate to the Royal Marsden Hospital charity. Last year we raised over £3000 for the Royal Marsden Hospital from entries fees, donations, raffle and charity auction.
This year a BBQ lunch is included in your entry fee, we have a couple of live bands and a well stocked Belgian styme bar.
We now have a fully traffic free route for the Espresso ride within the showgrounds, so a perfect place to ride with your family. Big Tim’s Big Day Out is a ride of 90km – the Grande – or a ride of 50km – the Cortado. Created by none other than Sean Yates, both rides start and finish at the South of England Showground at Ardingly and head off towards the Ashdown Forest to take in some classic local climbs. The route splits at Splaynes Green, the Grande heading south through some rolling terrain to Ringmer before heading back north. The Cortado takes a slightly easier route back to Ardingly, but beware, both routes have a sting in the tail…
If you would like to bring the family, just enter them on the Espresso ride and they will get a food voucher for the BBQ when they register.
