If you plan to use the train, please check the rail enquiries website before heading out. The last time we looked there was a “bus replacement service” (on which you can’t take bikes)
For those of you that haven’t had enough water yet, lets cycle to Sovereign Harbour to check out if the boats are still afloat!
This will be a relatively short ride, just to get out and blow the cobwebs away! Having the obligatory coffee, cake and stimulating conversation with our cycling friends.

Do join me for an on and off road ride, about 14 miles around Battle. It is not technical ride but you do need a hybrid or MTB. It should be very pretty with the autumn colours. Leave Battle Abbey Green at 10am. We will stop for coffee towards the end of the ride so bring a mini snack in case you get peckish. Back around lunchtime.
As always, please book in if you are coming, I will contact you if the weather is poor and unsuitable for riding.
PS Apologies for the late notice but circumstances have been beyond my control
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)!
