The Next Ride: Sunday 19 October 2014 – Eastbourne to Bexhill

8 October 2014

The next ride will start at Eastbourne Station at 11, the Brighton train departs at 10.20. We will be riding to Bexhill with lunch planned at the De La Warr Pavilion where there are several exhibitions and good food.

We will return via The Loom for tea (and cakes I hope) from Polegate trains leave at 06 and 42 past the hour. The exact route has not yet been decided but will be about 25 miles of fairly flat cycling. Anyone coming by car could probably leave the car at Polegate and get the train or cycle to Eastbourne Station, 5 or 6 miles depending on the route.

News

6 November 2013

Dear fellow members

Welcome to the annual festival of religious bigotry edition. (What has Lewes got to offer besides that and a prison? OK, I like the castle and Harvey’s beer.)

Haven’t yet been exactly overwhelmed by new ride leaders coming forward with great ideas for the early 2014 dates – but this may be because it’s still only the beginning of November and they’re all busy working on interesting routes to offer. (You can’t do this job for ten years if you’re not an optimist.)

NHS demo 2 November 2013

Busy day on Saturday – not to mention the “ill wind” ride on Sunday (see Suzanne’s report below). In the morning it was the “Defend the NHS” demo. Nice to see so many Clarionettes – Anne, Jim, Joyce, Leon, Mick, Nick – and Sue with the Silver Sounds contingent leading the way with some excellent samba. Sheila – a founder member of both our section and Silver Sounds – would have been delighted (being hopeless with such things I’m sending photos to Fred requesting he put a couple of them on Flickr).

Then in the evening we met up with Alex and the redoubtale London Clarion members who’d ridden down and met us at the Signalman. We discussed the possibility of joint rides – maybe with a common lunchtime meeting place (most likely a pub) and the two groups arriving from north and south respectively – if you see what I mean.
