Cooden to Hastings Old Town and back

Meet at Cooden Beach Station (free parking and loos) for a 09.30 start along NCN2 and the coastal route to Hasting Old Town, coffee at the Stade and back. Much of our route will be off-road along Bexhill and Hastings promenades and on the coastal path, including the newly re-surfaced Bulverhythe section.  There are a couple of hills either side of Glyne Gap but otherwise easy riding and no one gets left behind. There will be plenty of time and you can push your bike up the hill if you need to. We’ll need to take care on the promenades, especially if they are busy.
The ride is approximately 16 miles long.
Suggest you bring water and sunscreen.
