Cooden/Birling Gap/Arlington circular – longer route
Sat 13th July , 9:30 am - 3:30 pm
A medium pace and slightly longer version of one of our favourite rides. Please note the earlier than usual start time
We will leave Cooden Beach Station at 9.30, cycle along the coast to Eastbourne, climb up to Beachy Head, down to Birling Gap for coffee, back inland to East Dean, steep climb to Friston , then onto the A259 for a careful descent to Exceat and up the Cuckmere Valley to Arlington Reservior, via Litlington and Berwick for lunch (best to bring a picnic although the kiosk should be open too). We’ll then return to Cooden on a flat route over the Pevensey levels, aiming to return around 15.30
The route is approx 44 miles with 2 main climbs and 2 descents which require particular care.
Trains from Hastings are scheduled to leave at 09.00 and 09.07 arriving at Cooden 09.16 and 09.23 but please re-check before travelling. There is plenty of parking near to Cooden Beach Station plus public loos
