1066 Cycling Festival – Ride from Bexhill

Arrive at 1066 Cycle Club stand at Bexhill De La Warr Pavilion to leave at 11.00 on an easy 12 mile out and back ride  to Hooe in the Sussex countryside, stopping en route for refreshments before returning to Bexhill in time to enjoy the other activities going on at the 1066 Cycling Festival. There are a couple of hills on this ride but no one will be left behind.

Please contact Bill on 07746997193  if you would like to book or request further details.

Thursday evening ride – LITTLE COMMON

Meet at the Wheatsheaf Inn in Little Common, ready to start riding at 6:30pm. We will cycle for about an hour, then return to the Wheatsheaf for an optional drink and chat. The meeting point is adjacent to Little Common roundabout and is about 1 mile from Cooden Beach Station. There is free car parking in the streets near to the Wheatsheaf, in Oakleigh Road, the Gorseway and Chestnut Walk

No need to book, just turn up, please bring bike lights.

Our aim is to have two ride groups; a “tortoises” short & easy ride, and a “hares” ride which will be a bit longer and faster , however as this is a new venture we will assess which ride(s) to do based on the demand that evening.

Thursday Evening ride – BATTLE

Thursday Evening rides in Battle will run throughout the summer (except for the first week of every month, when they will be either in Bexhill or Little Common)

As with previous years we will meet on the Abbey Green, ready to start riding at 6:30pm. We will cycle for about an hour, then return to Battle for an [optional] drink at a café or pub

Whenever possible we will aim to have two ride groups every week; a short & easy ride, and another which will be a bit longer and faster. The leaders will describe the route(s) at the beginning and you can chose which one you want to go on.
Note that neither of the rides could be described as “Level 1” because there aren’t any routes we can use that are on the flat

No need to book, just turn up. Please bring lights and a bike lock if you have them

Thursday evening ride – BEXHILL

Meet on Bexhill Promenade next to the Sailing Club, ready to start riding at 6:30pm. We will cycle for about an hour, then return to Bexhill for an [optional] drink at a café or pub. The meeting point is a short cycle from Bexhill Station, and is conveniently situated on the National Cycle Network route 2. There is free car parking on Bexhill promenade.

Bedgebury single tracks

A really enjoyable trail through the woods and a great opportunity to practice/develop your MTB skills.

For those who may not have been before:

The trail is divided into a series of sections, so we can re-group at the end of each one. No-one will be left behind. The trails are well prepared and a pleasure to ride on.

Meet at the café for 10:30 start (or earlier if you fancy a coffee first). Mountain bike essential. If you would like to come along but do not have a mountain bike, you can hire one from Quench Cycles (01580 879694), which is at the Visitor Centre, adjacent to the car park and café at Bedgebury. Please allow at least 20 minutes to sort this out.  http://quenchuk.co.uk/bedgebury/

Remember to bring a drink and a snack to eat on the way round. We‘ll return to the café about 13:00 for coffee, cake and chat.

Anyone that would prefer to do the family trail instead should be OK with a hybrid bike and we can still meet up after at the cafe.

About 8 miles.

 

If, like me, you don’t want to pay for parking, consider riding in from Stonegate Station or parking in the lay-by on the A21 at Ticehurst (from where you can ride to the café on a track). Alternatively, park in Kilndown and ride to Bedgebury with me at 10:00 (takes 15 mins).

 

Please text David on 07709 620267 if you would like to come along.
