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.

Continue via Rushlake Green, Bodle St, Woods Corner getting back to Etchingham at about 2.30-3pm

Distance 28 miles, several hills, so probably a Level-2B.

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.)
