Autumn ride to Westfield

Leave Battle Abbey Green at 10 am. Cycle to Westfield via lovely Hurst Lane. On to Westfield, quick wave to the pub where we are going for our club New Year Meal and back to Battle. Approx 12 miles total.  There are, of course, a few hills but as a Level-2A ride we will do them steadily and you can walk if you’re puffed. I will be having coffee and home made cake at the Christmas Tree Festival, at St Mary’s Church in Battle.  I hope you will join me.

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 route is divided into lots of sections, so we can re-group at the end of each one. No-one will be left behind. The tracks are well prepared and a pleasure to ride on. A lot of them have been maintained recently, so the surfaces are mostly pretty good. About 8 miles total, including some stretches on the fire trails.

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

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

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.

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.
