Hops, Orchards and quiet lanes of the Weald

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)!

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!
