Once again the tried and tested Little Lumpy is back for 2013. Now in its 5th year it is 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, Haslemere Museum which is celebrating its 125th year, 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.
In order to enhance the facilities for our riders, this year we have moved the start and finish point to 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.
