Big Tim’s Big Day Out is a ride of 90 km – the Grande - or a ride of 50 km – 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... we are also pleased to announce that we have riders from Team Wiggins riding as well so it’s going to be a great event. Cycling weekly are also involved and will be writing a piece for us in their publication.
The Espresso ride is the easy way to enjoy the party - sign up for this ride and come along for the food and drink and know that your entry fee will go towards the Royal Marsden Charity.
For families or beginners to sportives, there is also a 15 km route, starting at 10.30am, suitable for families and those who want a shorter ride.
Mama C Events will have her Airstream Caravan at the Showground with food for all finishers as well as other offerings to purchase, and the Beer me brewery will provide a beer or wine for all riders and a pop-up bar. Electronic multi-point chip timing, super-fast registration make for a great day on the road. Enter now on the British Cycling website, £32 for the Grande 90k, £28 for the Cortado 50k.
THE AFTER PARTY
Fantastic local band The Straw Dogs have been booked to entertain you from 13:00 hrs at the after party at the Ardingly Show Ground. To pick up your free food and beer after your ride, you'll need to collect your ride-time ticket from the timing HQ and present that to MamaC for food and BeerMe for beer. More food and beer will be available to purchase to see you through the party!
Please note that on the day entries are not available for this event. This is because your entry fee includes food and a beer after your ride, and the caterers need advance numbers. Please enter in advance on the British Cycling website.
I hope that you will be able to support our charity ride, by passing this event on to riders, customers, friends and family and I would like to thank you now for your support.
