This is the most obvious way to go - and the one I first tried. But it's my least favourite way to go because it goes alongside a busy road for ages (A23) and is the least scenic. My favourite way is through Clayton past the famous Jack and Jill windmills. This includes a couple of miles on the A23 - but is much more scenic and has only one steep(ish) hill as you climb up to the windmills.

I did both routes this week, the one on the map and the one that pasabeograd explained

First one is easier/safer but much longer (13 miles), second one is faster, harder but the clayton road is steep, very narrow and cars are fast with heavy traffic. Better have good nerves to go through there.

I did it on a fixie so maybe geared cyclists will be more at ease on that section.

It's a nice choice to have though, if you're early, take longer route, if you're late, take harder route.

I commute Brighton-Burgess Hill -
Best Route for me: Dyke Rd, Devils Dyke Rd - cut across towards new timber place(beggars lane - church lane) and a tiny bit of off road to join your route - from Hurspierpoint - straight on! Then chalkers lane and malthouse lane...

A beaut commute! Also via Beacon is good but climb is steeper.
Pasabeograds route is quick - but too many fast cars on the dark/shady A273 bit for my liking.

I cycle into Brighton for college from hassocks so you can just join on the route from Hurst. I''ve done all there routes shown above and I''ve gotta say the best is definitely Le Cycle Touriste route, i mean there is a slight amount of off road but you can walk this bit if needed.
I''m not a massive cyclist and was riding my 1960 Raleigh winner i finally finished building and took her out for her first ride. i would say if you''ve got a mountain bike go on pasabeograd route and if you have a road bike Le Cycle Touriste route. The original route is just too dangerous and just not nice
