A Level-2b long distance of 26 miles @ 1350’ of climb and suitable for a hybrid or road bike.

I’d love your company on a ride from Cooden Beach Station (CBS) leaving  at 10.30am, cycling to Pevensey, Westham, through Hankham and across the Pevensey Levels. (map here)

We’ll head towards Herstmonceux and make our way to Ashburnham Pl for a coffee/lunch stop.

We’ll return via Ninfield, Hooe and Whydown to Little Common and back to CBS.

Should be back by around 2.30 to 3pm.

Total distance will be around 26 miles and the ride will be graded Level 3 (what we used to call “2b”) with road or hybrid bike suggested.

Please bring your ICE details on a separate piece of paper.

Update:A change of route and lunch/coffee break for our ride on New Years Day, tomorrow.
This is due to so many café/pub venue’s suitable for us being either closed or pre-booking only.
However, Hilliers Garden Centre is open from 10.30am to 3pm.
Weather forecast is currently excellent at around 12 deg C with low rain and a little windy at 15mph from the south south west. Start time is still 10.30 from CBS to give a little more recovery time after New Years Eve! So I’m changing the planned route and will go anti clockwise so that Hilliers is in the second half of our cycle. We’ll head up to Wydown Rd to Hooe, across Horse Walk to Wartling and up to Windmill Hill. From there, we’ll make our way over Pevensey Levels to Rickney and across to Hilliers for lunch/coffee.Then back to CBS via Hankham & Pevensey.
Should be back by around 2.30 to 3pm.
Total distance is now 28 miles with 1325’ of climb and the ride will be graded a leisurely level 3 (previous level 2b) with road or hybrid bike suggested.
Please bring your ICE details on a separate piece of paper.

Please text Woody on 07956 329979 or just turn up and be ready to leave CBS at 10.30 if you would like to join this ride.

Best Regards
