Route planning

Still stuck for ideas? How about basing a route around a coffee stop? There are maps of recommended stops here (Cafe Network) and  here (CTC)

Routes we’ve done before

We are starting to put together a list of ‘ready to ride’ routes, see here. Although in it’s infancy these should prove useful if you fancy a ride but don’t have time to plan it (working out timings, coffee stops, ride gradings, etc). Choose one that someone has already done 🙂

Help the environment

  • Foster Motors in station road Battle can take old bike tyres; they are sent for recycling into tennis courts !
  • If you’re travelling by car to the start point of a ride, please consider car-sharing. If you are a passenger in someone’s vehicle then we suggest you donate 10p per mile to the driver, although this is optional.
