UK South Accommodation
Chase the Sun UK South is self-supported longest-day cycle challenge, however, unless you have someone willing to drive you to the start before sunrise and pick you up at the finish after sunset then staying overnight at both the start and finish locations is an integral and enjoyable part of the mid-summer weekend’s adventure.
Your registration is to join the ride. You need to arrange and book your own accommodation independently. Below are links to conveniently located hotels, availability of rooms is limited, so you need to contact the accommodation and book your own rooms ASAP to avoid missing out.
