Please be clear that while all are welcome to join us we each take part in rides at our own risk.
Buses will replace trains on the London/Brighton line between Hassocks and Brighton on the 2nd October 2011, so a coastal ride is planned.
Please group at the Palace Pier from 10.30 am for a 10.45 departure.
We will ride to Ferring via the usual coastal cycleways: Shoreham, Lancing, Worthing and finishing at The Henty Arms, Ferring, where we will have lunch.
I have made a provisional booking for lunch at 13.45 for an anticipated turnout of eight riders. If there are more, a quick phone call will be made to adjust the number.
After lunch we will backtrack down Sea Lane to Goring station to catch the train back to Brighton.
I have planned that the journey to Hentys will take three hours and possibly one-and-a-half hours in the pub. The ride from the pub to Goring station is no more than one-and-a-half miles.
Train times back to Brighton: 05, 22, and 52 minutes past each hour.
