A leisurely paced ride (but still with hills to challenge you)! to Sissinghurst Castle grounds for lunch. Route will be Salehurst, Sandhurst, Beneden and after a mile or so on the Sissinghurst main road, we fork left down to enjoy a descent and sweeping views of the Sissinghurst Estate. Option to go up the tower over lunch which looks over the Gardens. (There is a charge) It’s approx 14 miles from Robertsbridge – we won’t have any other stops except for a snack stop on route. Cafe and kiosk at Sissinghurst and benches/tables in the grounds for picnic lunch.
We’ll come the same way back unless I can come up with an alternative route.
return- mid-late afternoon
train from Hastings: 8.57

Leaving Cooden Beach station at 10am, Returning approx 2:30pm (depending on time spent at lunch!)
A leisurely cycle along to Pevensey, Rickney, Polgate arriving at Arlington Reservoir for either a quick coffee stop or a leisurely lunch break depending upon the weather !
We shall then return via the Dicker, Hailsham and Rickney with a possible tea stop at chilley Farm.
There is a ‘Hut’ at Arlington Reservoir that serves hot drinks and cake (no GF or Soya options though, I propose we take our own supplies!)
The route is via National Cycle Route 2, and will take us on roads, tracks, off-road through woods, and a brief time on main roads. Approx 30 miles total, with an elevation of approx 450ft.
Although this route has been done on road bikes, I would suggest hybrid bikes would be more suitable.
