Oh No… Birling Gap again!
Sat 3rd November , 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
A ride which was meant to happen on 6th October, but was shortened on the day because of bad weather!
One of our favourite routes, let’s hope that the good weather persists.
Meet at Cooden Beach Station in time to leave at 10.00, we’ll ride via Pevensey Bay, Eastbourne Harbour, along the seafront, brief stop before we climb up to Beachy Head and then cruise down to coffee at Birling Gap where we’ll stop for around 30 minutes. After coffee we’ll cycle on to East Dean, up the hill to Friston and then via Jevington and Polegate to get back down to the levels and back to Cooden. The climbs up to Beachy Head and Friston will be challenging for some and some other parts of the ride are undulating but we’ll re-group so we can keep together, as we go.
Bring some snacks and water to help you along + we’ll take a vote on a 2nd drinks stop at Chilley Farm, as we go.
Free parking and public loos are available at Cooden Beach.
The 9.22 train from Hastings arrives at Cooden Beach at 9.38 (re-check before travelling)
The ride is approx 35 miles and we plan to return to Cooden before 3pm
