We will catch the 10.44 train to Hassocks (buy return tickets to Hassocks) arriving just before 11am.
As it is Easter Sunday we have planned an early lunch at Wivelsfield to avoid the crowds. Menus will be handed out on the train and lunch orders phoned through to the pub before we set off from Hassocks.
We head off through Keymer to Ditchling then turn left on Spatham Lane.
After a few yards we turn right onto an offroad track (weather permitting). A good easy surface for most of the way, there is a short section that some may choose to walk.
Arriving at Streat we turn left and head towards Wivelsfield on a small road that gently undulates.
The Cock Inn is our lunch stop where we plan to arrive between 12-12.30. http://www.cockinn-wivelsfield.co.uk/index.html
After lunch we set off for Lewes avoiding Plumpton Green, arriving at Cooksbridge where we take a small road to Hamsey then Offham. Arriving there we cycle the pavement of the busy A275 (the law having clarified that where it is dangerous to use the road, its ok to cycle on the pavement) before turning left into Lewes for tea.
Trains to Brighton: 06, 19, 44 past the hour.
On our practice ride we asked the pub to email me the menu so that we could all preorder (it being a busy day).
We will distribute printouts of it on the train to Hassocks on the day,but would encourage people to make a decision beforehand. We will be phoning through our orders from the station carpark.
Please phone Tessa on 01273 777574 if you are definitely planning to come on the ride so the pub can be alerted about numbers, beforehand.
