Road Cycling Highlight
Good spot but I avoid the climb on the north side of the beacon as it is a tricky one for cars. There are a number of bridleways to the east that also provide a decent climb to the south downs way only minutes away from the Beacon but have no cars on them. The down side is that one is concrete and the other poorly managed tarmac. I have 35c road tires and it is fine.

Ditchling Beacon, novice riders like us calls it Bitchling Deacon because its a hard steep hill climb but once you reach the top it will reward you with beautiful scenic view of the Soith Downs and Brighton and Hove.
