Our Sunday beginner ride looked like it was going to be a wet one, but the short, sharp shower ended before we set off. We took our usual route from Seaford’s Martello Tower to Corsica Road and Chyngton Road. We continued Eastwards along the length Chyngton Way before heading towards the A259 crossing at the top of Chyngton Lane. The bridleway from the A259 to the Alfriston Road was a bit slippery in places, but we took it nice and easy. Even though we were riding at a beginners pace we made good time to the northernmost point of Blatchington Golf Course before heading back to the top of Firle Road via the bridleway that bisects the golf course. In fact we had made such good time we all agreed to divert to Grand Avenue and down Hill Rise to stop at Newhaven and Seaford Sailing Club on Marine Parade for coffee and bacon sarnies (I had eggs benedict – very good it was, too).
Another brilliant ride with plenty of laughter along the way.
Next Sunday’s ride (Dec 28th) is an intermediate one from The White Lion to the Forest, where we try one of the easier and drier trails.
