If you're new to cycling, or have been off your bike for a while, this ride is perfect for you! This is a flat ride, using cycle paths and quiet roads to explore the delights of Hove and Southwick seafront; Hove Lagoon, Millionnaire Row (where the rich and famous live), Shoreham Harbour, and the wind turbines next to Carats cafe. Whilst there are no hills to contend with, the wind can makes the ride tough in one direction (but speedy and easy the other way!) We will stop at Carat's Cafe before we head back along the same route. Please bring: - Bike in full working order (tyres fully inflated, both brakes working, chain clean and lightly oiled) - Cycle helmet - Spare inner tube for your bike (it's easier to fit a new inner tube rather than fix a puncture, but there will be a variety of tyre sizes in the group so we ask you each to bring one to fit your bike) - Waterproofs - Drink - Money for the cafe - Sense of fun and adventure Also bring a lock with you if you’re worried about your bike when we’re in the café.
We ride at the pace of the slowest and never leave anyone behind.If you have any questions about the route or ride, contact the ride leader Nicola on 07941 670737. If you get delayed getting to the start, please call or text her on her mobile. We may have to leave without you if other riders have to be back from the ride by a certain time.
