If you have not ridden this route before, you will be pleasantly surprised by the mixture of coastal, urban and rural scenery that it offers. Good coffee and cakes at “Fusciardi’s Ice Cream Parlour” is also a bonus.
Leaving Cooden Beach Station at 10:00, we will follow the coastal route to Eastbourne, arriving at Fusciardi’s for coffee about 11:00. From there we will continue west and then head north inland towards Polegate via Willingdon.

The route has a few gentle undulations, which will be ridden at an easy/moderate pace. Total distance of about 30 miles.
We will leave CBS and cycle the familiar flat Pevensey Levels route to Stunts Green via Rickney. From there we will take the undulating lanes via Cowbeech and Vines Cross to Horam, where we can enjoy an early lunch at the Lakeside Café. For our return we will keep to the roads as far as Hailsham, then follow the Cuckoo Trail to Langney and back to Bexhill via Pevensey Bay.
