Stonegate ride

Rob says…

I’m doing a ride on Sunday, all welcome, sorry short notice, but more rides needed and weather reasonable, so grab it…….


Start Stonegate Station (trains running, one gets in at 10.18),or park there (or cycle there for extra points!) Depart at 10.30. Circular ride to lunch at Tottingworth Farm Cafe TN21 8TG near Heathfield. Hilly route at gentle pace so 2a ride, via Etchingham, Woods Corner. Arrive by 1pm, leave 2pm, short run back to Stonegate Station, due there for the 3.13 train back to the coast. Sorry no coffee!! Rob

If you plan to use the train, please check the rail enquiries website before heading out. The last time we looked there was a “bus replacement service” (on which you can’t take bikes)

Eastbourne/Polegate Circular

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 the Colonnade, Bexhill 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. We will then briefly join the southern end of the Cuckoo Trail before heading home via Rickney and the Pevensey Levels, arriving back about 14:30. The route has a few gentle undulations, which will be ridden at an easy/moderate pace. Total distance of about 30 miles.

09:37 train from Hastings arrives Bexhill 09:47.

Ample free street parking in area.


Cooden, Hooe, and Orangery

From Cooden beach we will go through Whydown onto Hooe and horsewalk, back along Boreham Lane to the A271, where we will cycle carefully to Tilly Lane. It’s then a bit more uphill and down dale to get to Ashburnham, and a shop at the Orangery for a spot of refreshment.
Taking Compass lane back to Ninfield, continuing on the A269 to Peartree lane and back to Cooden.

Quite a hilly route, some of the back lanes are rather wet and a little muddy so not ideal for your best road bike!

25 miles approx
level 2b

As usual, please let me know if you would like to join me…. so I can let YOU know if I cancel it due to the rain!!


Hops, Orchards and quiet lanes of the Weald

A leisurely but undulating ride from Robertsbridge to the pretty hop gardens and orchards area of the Weald and quiet winding lanes north or Rolverden.  No official coffee stop but can have a short early stop at the shop in Sandhurst which has a coffee machine.  A few short bits of main road and a short bridlepath to link the lanes.

Please carry plenty of snacks, drink etc as am struggling to find coffee/lunch venues.  Possible lunch at The World of Water cafe near Rolverden or bring your own.    Although a 2B because of distance and hills we’ll ride at the pace of the slowest rider.  Ha (probably me)!




Return of the Robertsbridge Circular!

I would love it if you would join me for this delightful circular route starting at Robertsbridge. It will be largely the same as previously but may have some adaptions.

We will cycle via Salehurst, Bodiam, Ewhurst Green, Northiam, (coffee/lunch stop at Will’s Cafe), Beckley, Staplecross and Cripps Corner.

The route is about 20 miles largely on quiet roads with 1,500ft of climb.

The hill out of Salehurst is steepish but gets it out of the way. The remaining route is undulating. Poppinghole Lane can be a ‘free cycle’ done at your own pace.

There is the option for lunch/tea at Judges Robertsbridge on return.

Let’s hope for a sunny day!
