The Next Ride

Sunday 6 March 2016: Hassocks to Lewes

We will catch the 10.59 train to Hassocks (buy return tickets to Hassocks) arriving 11.09. Londoners, there is a Victoria train arriving at Hassocks 11.05.

As it is Mothers Day we have planned an early lunch at the Cock Inn, Wivelsfield to avoid the crowds. The pub have asked me for approximate  numbers 4 days ahead, so please ring or text me if you plan on joining the ride.

We head off through Ditchling to Keymer 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 in Wivelsfield is our lunch stop where we plan to arrive just before 12.30.

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: 22, 44, 52  past the hour.
