Once again the tried and tested Little Lumpy is back for 2014. Now in its 6th year, we promise that it will be bigger and better than ever! Starting again in Haslemere, we take you through the prettiest parts of the Sussex and Hampshire Weald to the South Downs at South Harting where the Challenge and Epic routes branch off to take you over some testing little climbs.

A ‘not-for-profit’ event, raising money for Haslemere Festival and this year’s partner charity, Haslewey Community Centre. Haslewey is a non government funded Community Centre which provides a warm welcome and a place for people of all ages to come and enjoy. The centre which is a registered charity, has been open since 2003 and for this year we are seeking to refurbish the reception area. Therefore, Little Lumpy is a great way to support the community and provides you with a fantastic day’s riding in return. The home cooked food provided for riders at feeding stations around the course has now become legendary and is probably the best to be found at any Cycling Sportive throughout the country.

For those less local, we have arranged special rates for cyclists at the Georgian House Hotel, ring 01428 656644 quoting Haslemere Festival Accommodation rates for cyclists at other hotels are to be confirmed, so please do follow us on Facebook or Twitter. For more general information on accommodation in the area, please visit the Haslemere Visitor and Local Information Centre.

The start and finish points will again be at the Woolmer Hill Sports Association Club House at Woolmer Hill. As well as free parking, we are able to provide changing facilities, showers, toilets and all the facilities associated with a modern clubhouse.
