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 (coffee stop at The Hub), Ewhurst Green, Northiam, 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 before coffee!  The remaining route is undulating. Poppinghole Lane can be a ‘free cycle’ done at your own pace.
Coffee comes early in the ride and there is the option for lunch/tea at Judges Robertsbridge on return.

Meeting Place: Robertsbridge Station
Trains from Hastings leave at 09.50 arrive at 10.14 There is plenty of free parking on the roads, Recreation Ground and Station Road Car Park. (Please note not free at the Station).

Ride type: Level 2a
Suitable for: hybrid or road bikes.
Please text Dawn on 07870602277 if you would like to come.

‘Ride & Relax’

A ride with a surprise !

1066 Cycle Club circular tour

Route:

Hastings Pier – Quarry Hill – Queensway – Greenway Cycle Path – Watermill Lane – Potman’s Lane – A269 – Hope Cottage Farm Shop, Hooe  for refreshments (16 miles arriving approx. 11:30) – Whydown – Little Common – Bexhill Promenade – Cycle Path beside the sea – Hastings Promenade – Hastings Pier.

This 23 mile (mixed surface) ride has been put on to coincide with, and arrive back for, the “1066 Cycling Festival” event organised by “Active Hastings in partnership with Active Rother” on Saturday 22/6 between 2pm and 6pm.
1066 Cycle Club are one of a few local cycling clubs providing rides, and on which non-members are welcome to join. The ride will be led by an experienced ride leader and supported by existing club members, who will ensure the everyone is kept safe and has a good time. The route has a total elevation Gain of 925 feet and Maximum Elevation of 256 feet. It is undulating, and with the exception of Quarry Hill, has no steep hills. Whist moderately challenging, it should be well within the capabilities of a reasonably fit person who regularly rides a bike. It is not a race and will be ridden at a moderate pace. It can be ridden on any type of  bike but those riding light weight road bikes need to be aware that The Greenway has a gravelly but firm surface, at the end of which is a fairly short section of Byway that is hardcore and a bit rough, The surface of the cycle path beside the sea between Bexhill and Hastings is firm but also a bit rough.

Meeting place:

On the Promenade in front of the entrance gates/railings onto the Pier. The ride leader and assistants will be wearing white and blue 1066 Cycle Club jerseys.

Time:

Non-members: arrive 09:30 – 09:45.

Depart 10:00
Return 13:30 – 14:00

Horsewalk, coffee and Greenway

A 26 mile hilly ride leaving Bexhill Colonnade at 10.00 via Pear Tree Lane, Hooe, Horsewalk plus a few more hills to coffee at Ashburnham and return through Catsfield, Crowhurst and down the Greenway to Bexhill. I hope to be back in Bexhill by 14.00

Free parking is available on Bexhill prom plus public loos. The French market will be on in Devonshire Road on May 18 so allow time if this is on your way in to the Colonnade.
