The Red Lion, Shoreham By Sea
This is the part of a series of training rides, aimied at ladies who would like to build up stamina, strength & is a faster pace than our usual rides.
We run a varierty of rides all aimed at a wide range of cyclists, there is something available for everyone.If you are unsure of your ability then please contact us on BreezeSussex@gmail.com & we can help you find the perfect ride for you.
A faster paced ride. The ride is on road, with some serious hills. Best suited to those confident to ride in traffic. Road bikes or light hybrids with slimmer road tyres, not MTBs.
From the Red Lion, we'll head south onto Brighton Rd along the coast to Western Rd where we'll head inland, through Sompting Village & then up over Steyning Bostal (the easy side) through Upper Beeding, along Edburton Rd, Clapper Lane to Hurstpierpoint, Hassocks & Ditchling village, where we'll have a stop at the lovely tea rooms, before we tackle the big one.... Ditchling Beacon!!!
From there it's a lovely long swoop down to cross over the A27 & into Brighton, we' stop again at Hove Park, for any riders from the brighton area who wish to end here.
Then heading back to Shoreham.
Total distance is 38 miles.
There will be a cafe stop at Ditchling (approx 22miles) Although we pause along the route for quick pit stops, so make sure you bring enough fluid/snacks to keep you going in between.
Wearing a helmet is advisable; if you don’t have one please do not to worry you can still take part. If you enjoy the bike ride and would like to come again perhaps you could look to buy one then.
Look forward to seeing you there.
Don’t forget…. Breeze are on a mission to spread the word about their rides, and need your help. If you introduce one friend who goes on to take part in a Breeze ride, you’ll receive a Breeze water bottle, introduce a second friend, you’ll be the proud owner of one of their swish Breeze Buffs, and introduce a third friend and Breeze will send you £15 of Love2Shop vouchers.
