Sussex and Kent offer a range of excellent cycling options, some highlights being:
plus many more.
There'll be a choice of rides out to the hostel on Saturday (train part-way for most, cycle all the way for the dedicated), then a choice of rides over the weekend, ranging from easy pedals along the coast to a solid workout through the Sussex hills. On Saturday we'll eat out (or you can cater for yourself at the hostel), then on Sunday night we'll cook up a proper cyclist's dinner at the hostel. On Monday we'll do a shorter ride and catch the train back to London.
Cost for accommodation and the Sunday night meal is £55 per person. If you haven't been on one of our weekends before and would like to see the reports of previous weekends, have a look at Kent 2010 and Suffolk 2009 or the Rides Diary for earlier rides.
Upcoming rides & events
Our rides are highlighted by "RIDE". You don't have to be a member to join in and we're also always looking for new ride ideas. Contact our Rides Co-ordinator for further information.
There is no need to register beforehand for a ride unless this is specifically stated, most rides are "turn up and go".
Please note that for train assisted rides we often cannot publish times until about 2 weeks beforehand because of the need to check engineering works. Also sometimes our ride leaders do have to change dates/times/routes at reasonably short notice. Generally this website will be up to date and also details will be sent out to our email groups, but if in doubt contact the ride leader or our rides co-ordinator to check arrangements.
