Thanks to all of you who cycled with us on May 21st 2017, what a great day it was. We look forward to seeing you again in 2018.




What goes up must come down!

Once again the increasingly popular, tried and tested, Little Lumpy is back for 2018. Now in its 10th year, we offer you the chance to experience the charms and challenges of the proven designated routes. Setting off again from 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.

Little Lumpy is a ‘not-for-profit’ event, with monies raised being distributed between Haslemere Festival and an elected partner charity. We are very pleased to announce that 2018’s partner charity is Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care. In addition, we are giving the Royal British Legion in this the centenary year of the end of the First World War, a number of free places for riders to raise money directly for them. We have three routes to choose from, ranging from 40 to 100 miles - please note those under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

As in previous years, you will be able to enjoy the warm welcome and home baked cakes at the feeding stations around the course. This is only possible due to the dedicated group of volunteers and Haslemere bakers, whose efforts seem to have become legendary, with the tempting selection probably the best to be found at any Cycling Sportive throughout the country. In addition, at the start there will be a free breakfast on offer, comprising tea / coffee plus a bacon butty or equivalent vegetarian option. At the finish, the bar will be open and a hot meal will be available at a small price. So stay and linger to enjoy the company of your new found cycling friends and share your experience of what is one of the top Sportives in the South East of England.

Route Distance Climb To 31st Dec Jan 1st - Apr 30th May 1st - 19th
100 miles 8434ft £25 £30 £35
60 miles 4587ft £20 £25 £30
40 miles 3131ft £20 £25 £30

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.
