The next ride: Sunday 30 April 2017 – The Level to Brighton Pier via Falmer, Woodingdean and Rottingdean

Distance: 13 miles 
Duration: about 4 hours, including lunch in Rottingdean.
Start: 10.30 at the Velo Cafe on The Level
Finish: Brighton Pier
 
We meet at the (former?) Velo Cafe on The Level by 10.30 and then ride on the cycle lane along the Lewes Road to the University of Sussex. We go up the slip road and past the roundabout for a brief stop at the Falmer pond by St. Laurence church.  Then onto the cycle path that runs south parallel to the Falmer Road. This path involves an uphill gradient/undulation to the top of the Downs where there are views east towards Lewes and the other way across Brighton to the sea.
 
We turn left into Bexhill Road to go down on the eastern side of Woodingdean through housing estates so as to avoid the main road (ie Falmer Road, B2123), until we join it just north of Rottingdean. 
 
Lunch can be taken in Rottingdean either at The Queen Victoria Pub, 54 The High Street, on the left just before the A259 T-junction (recommended by Angela D), or at The Coach House on the other side of the A259.
 
After lunch we cycle westwards along the undercliff path back to the Brighton Pier.
