LAST Thurs ride – BATTLE 6pm

Our last Thursday evening ride of the year, this week we are starting at 6pm

 

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 fall into what we call “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

If you feel like leading a ride then let Sue, Chris or Dale know beforehand

Cooden to Hastings Old Town and back

Meet at Cooden Beach Station (free parking and loos) for a 09.30 start along NCN2 and the coastal route to Hasting Old Town, coffee at the Stade and back. Much of our route will be off-road along Bexhill and Hastings promenades and on the coastal path, including the newly re-surfaced Bulverhythe section.  There are a couple of hills either side of Glyne Gap but otherwise easy riding and no one gets left behind. There will be plenty of time and you can push your bike up the hill if you need to. We’ll need to take care on the promenades, especially if they are busy.
The ride is approximately 16 miles long.
Suggest you bring water and sunscreen.
