New Website

You may have noticed that look of the Cycle Seahaven website has changed, for example the menu is now on the left-hand side of the screen. I hope you enjoy using the new website but if you experience any problems using it then please let me know and I’ll arrange to get them resolved. The […]

Springtime on the Cuckoo Trail

It’s a great time of year to cycle along the Cuckoo Trail. Spring has well and truly sprung; there’s an abundance of bluebells, primroses and wild garlic in the hedgerows and woodland glades, the birds are in full song and, of course, it’s traffic-free. Seven of us cycled along it today from Hailsham to Heathfield, […]

Touring Ride Descriptions: Improvements

Some improvements have been made to the ride descriptions of Touring rides on the Rides Calendar which, hopefully, members will find useful when considering going on any of our rides. The ride description will now include six side-headings: DISTANCE REFRESHMENT STOPS TERRAIN ROUTE CHANGES RIDE LEADER ‘Route’ has always included a hyperlink to the plotted […]

A record Year for the Tourers

It’s been another record year for the tourers: 120 touring rides in 2017, an increase of 15% on the 2016 total of 103 rides. There would have been more but some were cancelled due to bad weather. Also, anyone who’d been on all these rides in 2017 would have cycled just over 4100 miles, an […]

It was our third year in succession at the Legion so it’s becoming something of a tradition. That’s hardly surprising as the meal is excellent value for money and it’s a very […]

Winter Touring Rides

The weather is getting colder and Jack Frost has started to visit us. As in previous years, our touring rides will continue throughout Winter on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday of each week. However, please check the Rides Calendar on the morning of a ride in case there’s been a change. Changes to rides are more likely during […]

Cycle Seahaven Tourers’ WhatsApp Group

The WhatsApp group for the tourers which was set up about a month ago is working well. It’s proving useful for advising and consulting group members about late changes to rides. Also, group members can invite others in the group to join them on their own (non-Cycle Seahaven) rides. Most of the regular tourers have joined […]

A Perfect Autumn Cycle Ride

Thursday was a superb day, dry and sunny with no wind: the perfect autumn day for cycling. Our destination was Bexhill, one of our favourite destinations for a ride. It’s a virtually flat route apart from Chapel Hill just after the start; in fact roads don’t get much flatter than Rickney Lane which we cycled […]
