Brighton to Wivelsfield: Sunday 28 November, Preston Park (south end), 10am
This little ride arose out of a trip to Plumpton Green that I made in the summer. It taught me that you can actually ride over Ditchling Beacon and live, as long as you have good brakes and don’t do anything silly.
The ride is mainly on quiet roads and cycle paths, with an optional bit of woodland. If we want a pub lunch we can call in at the Cock at Wivelsfield Green, which has featured on many previous rides. I haven’t booked anything as I don’t anticipate a big turnout; and in any case we might want to sit outside.
The ride ends at World’s End (aka Wivelsfield) where we can use the handy step-free access to the station to get a train back.
Meet at 10am in Preston Park, south end, near the junction of Stanford Avenue and Preston Road. Those wanting second breakfasts might want to arrive there earlier and throw themselves on the mercy of the Rotunda Café, which opens at 9.30.
The ride is about 15 miles long.
