Eastbourne for coffee

We will set off from Bexhill Colonnade at 10am, out through Norman’s Bay and on to Eastbourne where we will stop for coffee and cake at Fusciardi’s.  From there we will pick up the cycle paths through the industrial estate and Hampden Park to Polegate, and then head east across the Levels via Hankham to Pevensey Castle where we will stop at the café for some light refreshment, or at the pub opposite if you prefer.  We will then loop back down to Pevensey Bay and back along the coast to Bexhill.

28 miles, flat as a pancake, back about 3pm

 

Bexhill to Lime Cross Nursery

A mainly flat and familiar ride with just a few gradients. We will take the quiet and easy route over the Pevensey Levels to Lime Cross Nursery for coffee. From there we will head west to Hellingly and join the Cuckoo Trail. We will then head south and branch off after Hailsham to cross back over the Levels to Pevensey roundabout.

Hybrid or Road Bikes recommended.  Approx 28 miles total

Ham Street to Shadoxhurst (well, almost)

Fairly easy MTB ride, re-run by popular request. Previously run on 4th August, but many people were unable to come due to holiday period.

Suitable for those that are less confident doing technical sections. If you find Bedgebury a bit challenging, this could be the ride for you!

Starting at Ham Street Station, this ride is mainly a mixture of country lanes and fairly decent tracks through the woods and forest. Some hills, but not many and nothing severe.

The route loops round through Ruckinge and Shadoxhurst and back to Ham Street, where there is a nice tea room. About 16 miles all told, so probably about 2 ½ hours, plus time at the tea room.

Free parking at station and on roads nearby.

Start from Ham Street Station at 10:15. The 09:26 from Hastings arrives 10:01 – but check for engineering work and strikes. (At present, the railway website can’t confirm the service will run, presumably it’s too far ahead at the time of writing.)

Battle Bridleways

Join me to ride the bridleways of Battle with a reward of coffee at Great Park Farm in Catsfield after the tracks. We will be cycling off and on road so a mountain or hybrid will be needed.
Leaving Battle Abbey Green at 10 am, we will come back to Battle by road at around  lunch time. Total of 16 miles

Combe Valley Way greenway ride

Meet Battle Abbey Green for a on and off road ride to Bexhill via the Combe Valley Way Greenway. We will start riding at 9.30 and go on-road to St Leonards. There will be a pick up at Bannatyne’s. We will meet any riders who are joining us at the Hotel entrance not the entrance to the Heath Club. We will leave there at 10:10am.
We will then cycle, mainly off-road to Bexhill. It is not technically difficult but you will need tyres that grip when there are loose stones. The off-route section is quiet and the views amazing. Coffee in Bexhill. Then we will retrace our steps back to Battle. Back at Abbey Green at lunchtime.
Please text me if you wish to join me and say where you will start. 07952166819  Sue

Coffee with Sussex Nomads

We plan to do a ride which goes to the pop-up cafe organised by the Sussex Nomads cycle club.
Start from Battle as below, ride via lanes to Bodle St Green where we will have a SOCIABLE COFFEE at the hall, as organised by the Sussex Nomads cycle club; other local clubs should be there.

We haven’t done this before, so it’s something new……

 

Hi,
Just a reminder about the Sussex Nomads pop-up cafe, Sunday 12th
August, which is being held in he village hall, Bodle Street Green,
Herstmonceux, BN27 4UB.
We will be serving refreshments and cakes from 10:45am to 12:45pm and
are hoping that local clubs will be able to join us.
Regards,
