The route way points/sections will be as follows:

Past the Indian Chattri Memorial (photo opportunities!) to Vale Road area of Patcham.
A choice of routes through Patcham, which might include the cycle route into Brighton, quiet roads, part of Withdean Woods to join the cycle route at Peacock Lane and then to Preston Park for another tea or coffee.
As on all the rides I run we take our food and drink with us so that none of us will have too many hunger pangs and thirst!
I have planned the morning tea/coffee stop but we tend to take lunch on the hoof, or wheel might be appropriate, using sheltered woods, barns or bus stops so any riders need to know this in advance. We do this so that muscles don’t get too cramped or stomachs overladen!
WE ARE NOT A HARDRIDING GROUP BUT COUNTRYSIDE POTTERERS ENJOYING THE AIR, SOUNDS AND VIEWS
For those with smartphones the free app, MAPS.ME will show the route and I use this for simple reference on rides and general navigation if required and have found it very useful.
