On line registration is now closed, but you can still register and sign-on to ride, on the day. Please arrive at the Woolmer Hill clubhouse on Sunday August 1st between 07:00 am and 8:30 am and we will accommodate you.
Due to the uncertainty of COVID restrictions during May, the organising committee have had no choice but to move the date to Sunday August 1st . We apologise for this inconvenience.
As with so many other sporting events, due to COVID 19, we had to cancel the 2020 Little Lumpy. However, we now feel confident that the 2021 Little Lumpy will take place and with your support it will be bigger and better than ever.
We will be closely following the rules and guidelines laid down by HM Government, together with those of British Cycling, but it is our intention to again provide you with one of the very best Sportives to be found anywhere in the country. We therefore look forward to once again seeing friends old and new for a great day out.
Although we had to cancel the 2020 Little Lumpy we were overwhelmed by the generosity of you, our Little Lumpy riders, who donated an amazing £4,300 to Alice Holt Inclusive cycling (AHIC). As a result we were able to buy the following Van Raam Fun-2-Go Tricycle which was donated to AHIC.
Once again the increasingly popular, tried and tested, Little Lumpy is back for 2021. Now in its 13th 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 2021’s partner charity is Haslewey Community Centre. Monies from Little Lumpy are to be spent specifically on new disabled doors with power assist mechanisms to all toilet facilities and any money remaining, used to update internal doors with similar mechanisms.
We have three routes to choose from, ranging from 40 to 100 miles - please note that e-bikes are welcome and 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.
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.

Once again we look forward to seeing those of you who have cycled with us before and for those who haven't, trust us when we say this is a Sportive not to be missed.
