Despite the recent apalling weather the Southease to Rodmell section of The Egrets Way is now under construction, linking up the SouthDowns Way to the bridleway from Rodmell. This is an important step in creating a full length cycle way between Lewes and Newhaven. This second stage (the first being the Lewes to Kingston link) will open up the possibility to take your bike on the train to Southease then ride along the banks of the Ouse before turning left to Monks House and the Abergavenny Arms at Rodmell – all on the flat. For the time being only half the route will have a rustic all-weather surface, so at some times of the year this may not be suitable for thinner-tyres. We hope this will change in the near future so access will be given to all ages and abilites, whatever the weather.
The Ouse Valley Cycle Network project (OVCN.org.uk) continue to strive for a full length cycle and walk way, sensitively surfaced to match the beauty of the valley while providing access for all abilites. The OVCN steering group are spending considerable time on making this happen, and Cycle Seahaven are proud to offer support. You can donate a few quid to help make this exciting project a reality by visiting on our online store: http://cycleseahaven.org.uk/store/. Thank you.
