We will catch the 10.44 train to Hassocks (buy return tickets to Hassocks) arriving just before 11am.
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) to Streat. 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.
We then take the Lewes road and head for 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 a late lunch, probably at the Harveys pub by the river.
Trains to Brighton from Lewes: 22, 44 & 52 past the hour.
It would be good to have some idea of numbers so we can alert the pub. Please text Tessa on 07887 489900 or phone her on 01273 777574 to say if you plan to join the ride.
