Thursday evening ride – BATTLE

Thursday Evening rides in Battle will run throughout the summer (except for the first week of every month which will be at Bexhill, and the third week of every month which will be at 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.

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.

Coffee with Sussex Nomads

We plan to do a ride which goes to the pop-up cafe organised by the Sussex Nomads cycle club.
Start from Battle as below, ride via lanes to Bodle St Green where we will have a SOCIABLE COFFEE at the hall, as organised by the Sussex Nomads cycle club; other local clubs should be there.

We haven’t done this before, so it’s something new……

 

Hi,
Just a reminder about the Sussex Nomads pop-up cafe, Sunday 12th
August, which is being held in he village hall, Bodle Street Green,
Herstmonceux, BN27 4UB.
We will be serving refreshments and cakes from 10:45am to 12:45pm and
are hoping that local clubs will be able to join us.
Regards,
Steve Ratford, Treasure Sussex Nomads
