MTB ride – Polegate start
Sun 27th May , 10:00 am
Off-road ride starting at the junction of Levett Road and Shepham Lane Polegate. Post code BN26 6NE (a residential area, please park your car responsibly!). The train from Bexhill gets in at 10:07 No details of engineering works as yet.
This is a ride that starts at one of the starting points of the Cuckoo Trail but quickly diverts to Abbots Wood where we will attempt to do a circuit and then heading West towards Arlington Reservoir. Then after the reservoir a road ride/bridleway to Middle Farm. We can have a stop there if wanted. From there we follow the Coach Road East towards Berwick village where we will follow a bridleway to the south of the village and onto the Alfriston Road and then towards Arlington Reservoir where we will retrace our route to Abbots Wood where we will do a different circuit and back to the start.
I would advise Mountain Bikes as some of the bridleways in the woods and outside the woods may be quite muddy. Depends on the weather running up to this ride. However if people want to have a go on Hybrids then its up to you. One can always walk through any muddy bits.
Abbots Wood is fun though can be a bit challenging knowing in which direction you are travelling. A relatively flat ride. When we get to Middle Farm we can make an informed decision as to whether we follow the whole route or cut it short depending on how everyone feels. I reckon the ride will be in the region of 20/25 miles.
Usual caveats apply. Helmets are a must. Well maintained bike. Puncture repair kits. Spare tyre. Water. Clothing appropriate for the weather forecast.
