CANCELLED – Off Road ride from Middle Farm

Apologies, this ride has been cancelled due to weather conditions

John contacted us and said Hi, sorry to be a pain but considering the amount of rain we have had and the forecasted rain I am cancelling the ride for tomorrow. It would too challenging for 1066 in  these conditions




Off Road ride from Middle Farm (off A27 between Selmeston and Glynde)

Distance is around 20 miles. Some climbing but no technical skills required. There is a steep descent which I may or may not include. (I will be doing this descent later this week so will decide after that)

Mountain bikes only. Proper off road tyres. Bike in good condition. Good brakes. Helmet. Gloves. Puncture repair kit plus spare inner tube.

You will need to bring some food and especially water. Most probably a stop in Seaford maybe for food. Parts of this ride will cover new routes.

This will be a full day ride.

As I do not normally ride off road at weekends I will cancel if no one contacts me to say they are coming, or in the event that the weather is atrocious.

Please text John on 07505665072 if you would like to come along.

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.
