We’re lucky in Cycle Seahaven as we have miles and miles of wonderful country lanes to cycle along, many having little traffic and just the occasional horse or farm vehicle to pass. Those around Ripe, Chalvington and Chiddingly are especially quiet; the hedgerows are looking magnificent at this time of year: lots of pink willow herb, blue tufted vetch, reddish-brown meadow cranesbill, not to mention an abundance of white cow parsley and verdant ferns. On a warm summer’s day it’s like a cycling paradise!
That’s what eight of us from Cycle Seahaven experienced today (Thursday). It was a perfect morning for cycling; the sun was shining and there was a slight breeze to cool us down a tad. It was a round trip of 40 miles with a refreshment stop at a new café for us: The Grove Café and Village Shop at Blackboys. Fantastic! Good tea and coffee, excellent cakes and cyclist friendly. We’ll certainly be going back there again so I’ve added it to our Refreshment List.
My thanks to all those who cycled with me today through this cycling paradise; great company. It was a perfect cycle ride!
Lets hope for many more.
