Start from the motor road climb behind Wallands School in Lewes (Can also start from the prison, or the car parks at Ditchling Beacon or Sussex Uni). Continual climb up to the top of Mount Harry, past the racecourse and onto National Trust land. This can get very muddy in autumn/winter so have crud catchers at the ready. From Mount Harry, either take the chicken run around the bottom of Blackcap or go up and over for fantastic views from the trig point. Join the SDW and follow it along the ridge until Ditchling Beacon. Just over the beacon, take a left up a small track. Follow this down a rocky descent and around the edge of a field. Climb up to join the main road and cross straight over it into the wood. Take an immediate right and follow the doubletrack until you reach a gate by a dew pond. Through the gate, follow the tracks until you reach another gate entering some more woods. Enjoy the doubletrack descent (beware of walkers/dogs/the sharp left at the end). Pass to the left of the next car park, then follow the doubletrack straight ahead. Look out for a fallen tree (probably removed by now) and take a left to run parallel with the A27. Follow this singletrack descent down for a while until you reach the hill before the bridge. Swing a left and follow some more (steeper) doubletrack down and out onto the grass of Stanmer Park. From here, it's a simple ride home along the A27 cycle path. For a technical challenge turn left onto Houndean farm as you enter Lewes and climb up to the top of the Gallops without dabbing.
