You begin the Ripon Revolution on a steadily increasing incline, the perfect time to warm up your legs before tackling the highest peak of the route. The climb is worth it for the breath taking views of the surrounding area and the speed you'll be able to hit on the steep descent.

Last but certainly not least, the Wiggle South Downs marks the rear end of the season but rest assured this event is certainly unique and makes sure your cycling season ends on a high. It offers more than just your normal course setting with a race against the clock to beat one of the toughest hill climbs around. This century long ride features 5,000ft of ascent throughout the day, ending with the separately timed Butser Hill challenge which is the highest point of the South Downs.

You'll be glad to know that the climb isn't too long, however the incline is not for the feint of heart, coming in at an impressive 21% increase it's certainly one of the steepest climbs our routes have to offer. Be sure to save some energy in the tank as this falls towards the back end of the route. End your cycling year on a high by taking on the century that is Wiggle South Downs and reward yourself with a few months rest before you're back at it again in 2018!
