We will leave CBS and cycle the familiar flat Pevensey Levels route to Stunts Green via Rickney. From there we will take the undulating lanes via Cowbeech and Vines Cross to Horam, where we can enjoy an early lunch at the Lakeside Café. For our return we will keep to the roads as far as Hailsham, then follow the Cuckoo Trail to Langney and back to Bexhill via Pevensey Bay.
Although graded as a 2b, only the northern undulating half will really test the legs. There are no big hills. Approx 35 miles

From Cooden beach we will go through Whydown onto Hooe and horsewalk, back along Boreham Lane to the A271, where we will cycle carefully to Tilly Lane. It’s then a bit more uphill and down dale to get to Ashburnham, and a shop at the Orangery for a spot of refreshment.
Taking Compass lane back to Ninfield, continuing on the A269 to Peartree lane and back to Cooden.
Quite a hilly route, some of the back lanes are rather wet and a little muddy so not ideal for your best road bike!
25 miles approx
As usual, please let me know if you would like to join me…. so I can let YOU know if I cancel it due to the rain!!
A leisurely but undulating ride from Robertsbridge to the pretty hop gardens and orchards area of the Weald and quiet winding lanes north or Rolverden. No official coffee stop but can have a short early stop at the shop in Sandhurst which has a coffee machine. A few short bits of main road and a short bridlepath to link the lanes.
Please carry plenty of snacks, drink etc as am struggling to find coffee/lunch venues. Possible lunch at The World of Water cafe near Rolverden or bring your own. Although a 2B because of distance and hills we’ll ride at the pace of the slowest rider. Ha (probably me)!
Note, the date of this ride has changed. It is now on 29th
A fabulous gently undulating ride with quiet lanes, and great views from points on the north downs. There is a 3½ miles track to Catha’s seat which would be tricky for skinny tyres. Although marked as 2b because of distance this will be an all day leisurely ride with a couple of stops to be sorted for coffee and lunch. Am keeping this to a maximum of 10 riders due to getting bikes on trains etc.
Approx 35 miles
suitable for hybrid bikes
Time of start: 10.15
Meet: Ashford International Station (If driving the car park only costs £1 all day on a Sunday)
Return: late afternoon around 5pm.
