Winchelsea & Rye Harbour (Level-1 ride)

A gentle ride to have coffee at Rye Harbour. We will be following the National Cycle Network Route 2 to Winchelsea Beach and then on the traffic-free path through the nature reserve to our destination. The sea is on one side the lakes and wildlife on the other, hopefully plenty of winter waders. A truly special place. People returning to cycling are especially welcome. 11 miles in total.
