Ouse Valley Wander
From Brighton: 10:47am Seaford train, gets in to Lewes at 11:02am. Will need to check trains nearer the day to make sure no engineering works or other problems.
We will meet you at Lewes station and process up Station Street in orderly fashion (possibly walking, depending!), to arrive at the Elephant and Castle pub, where we may meet up with others from Lewes.
Distance: 22 miles.
Terrain: Easy with one long incline and one short steep hill. All on road except for the last section on the Ringmer cycle path but roads are generally quiet.
The ride goes up through Barcombe to Piltdown, turning by the fishing lake and then going round and back through Isfield with a stop at the Laughing Fish pub. We have always managed as a bike group to fit into the garden of this pub so hopefully this should be fine, but if anyone wants to make a proper reservation just in case, the phone number is: 01825 750349. We should arrive at the pub around 1pm barring any major hold-ups.
After lunch, there is a quiet section round the back of Ringmer which may be familiar to many of you, and we end up back in Lewes on the Ringmer cycle track.
