CrossBones Gravelcross - a late autumn Gravelcross monster!

We head for the Deep South (Downs) for a late autumn Gravelcross monster! CrossBones takes you over a steep-sided landscape, steeped in history. Anciemt barrows, burial grounds, earthworks and hill forts are your backdrop as dirt, chalk, tarmac and grit are your roll under your tyres.

This is off piste South Downs; a ride to show you that there is so much more to this area than just the South Downs Way. Ride over the stunning Chanctonbury and Cissbury Rings, through the woods at Angmering, climb from the river at Arundel high onto the downs above Amberley. The route criss-crosses this corner of the South Downs ridge, using every contour to deliver a magnificent open hill adventure!

Three route distances from 36-75km are there to choose from, to tailor the adventure to your fit, and anything from gravel bikes to plus tyred MTBs will have a blast on this course! And as ever, full sign posting, rider support, feed stations, digital mapping (and old fashioned paper maps!) ride timing and post ride catering will all be on hand to complete your day. Don’t miss this awesome addition to our Gravelcross line up!

75, 57 & 36km course options.
