The Next Ride
Please be clear that while all are welcome to join us we each take part in rides at our own risk.
Sunday 6 February
Berwick circular, c 14 miles only
This is what should have been the last ride of 2010 - which had to be cancelled because of ice and snow. It's a really short and flat one that maybe will tempt everyone out unless the weather is atrocious. We'll do the usual loop round the Berwick, Ripe, Chalvington area and stop for lunch at the Yew Tree pub.
Distance: c 14 miles.
Hills: If I say there aren't any hills, someone is bound to point out that the road went 'up' for 10 or 20 metres at some point - but it really is pretty flat.
Off road: None.
Traffic: Quiet roads.
Catering: Yew Tree for lunch. Possible tea stop (depending on train times and our own progress) at the Berwick Inn.
Catch the 10.20 from Brighton station (platform 8) or meet at Berwick station at 10.43. Trains back at 14.35, reaching Brighton at 15.06, or 15.35 (16.06). There is an in-between possibility at 14.53, which involves two changes - on to Polegate and then back again changing at Lewes. Don't think I'd fancy that one if I was using the train.
(Be at Brighton Station by 10.05 for Groupsave.) Ian's mobile number is 07770 743287
Anyone fancying a longer ride from Lewes (meeting the rest of us en route or at the pub) please contact Jenny to discuss the possibilities on 01273 400896.
