Another ‘traditional’ one.. We first did this in October 2004.
Up the Trail as far as Horam then off to Vines Cross to the Brewer’s Arms for lunch returning by quiet roads through Vines Cross, Cowbeach, Stunts Green (wheelies at your own risk), Ginger Green, across the Levels to Rickney, then back to Cuckoo Trail and eventually Polegate.
Distance: about 20 miles.
Hills:the ex-railway Trail climbs almost imperceptibly. Only little inclines where the bridge that used to cross the road is no longer there. There are a few minor ‘ups’ coming back until we get to the Pevensey Levels –whose name speaks for itself!
Off road: Well surfaced Cuckoo Trail
Traffic: Shouldn’t be a problem – quiet roads and the Trail.
Lunch and Tea: Brewers’ Arms for lunch. Possible tea stop (depending on train times and our own progress) at the Old Loom
Catch the 10.20 from Brighton station or meet at 10.49 at Polegate station. (Be at Brighton Station by 9.50 for Groupsave.) Trains back at 6 minutes past the hour with a change at Lewes and 42 minutes direct.
