Return of the Robertsbridge Circular!

I would love it if you would join me for this delightful circular route starting at Robertsbridge. It will be largely the same as previously but may have some adaptions.

We will cycle via Salehurst, Bodiam, Ewhurst Green, Northiam, (coffee/lunch stop at Will’s Cafe), Beckley, Staplecross and Cripps Corner.

The route is about 20 miles largely on quiet roads with 1,500ft of climb.

The hill out of Salehurst is steepish but gets it out of the way. The remaining route is undulating. Poppinghole Lane can be a ‘free cycle’ done at your own pace.

There is the option for lunch/tea at Judges Robertsbridge on return.

Let’s hope for a sunny day!
