‘Dare to Bare’ Bike Rides

Following on from a secretive but successful trial, Cycle Seahaven will be running regular naked bike rides in and around Newhaven, Peacehaven and Seaford.

We have permission from local authorities and Sussex Police to start our ‘Dare to Bare’ series of rides & events,  so we’re seeking club members to join us to promote the freedom that comes from cycling.

You will need to ride without garments, but shoes and back-pack are allowed. You must wear a safety helmet; gloves and knee/elbow pads are optional.

A number of dates for all abilities have been planned throughout the warmer months (no excuses, gents). To see photos from our trial ride and to book a place, please visit our Dare To Bare page HERE.

Who’s Up for a Challenge

Planning on overdosing on chocolate this Easter? Is your bike feeling neglected? Are you training for an upcoming event? If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these (or even if you didn’t) how about a little challenge for April.

Helen Blaber and the ‘usual suspects’ decided (over a glass of wine or two) to challenge themselves to ride EVERY day in April. With summer just around the corner it’s a great idea, so who’s in?

No rules, no planning, simply get out and ride every day in April; around the block, across the Downs, off-road, on road, alone or with friends, it really doesn’t matter.

For those that need a little motivation I’ve set up a Facebook ‘event’ for the month, so you can message others doing the challenge for those days when you don’t feel like riding alone. If you don’t use Facebook but want others to know you are up for the challenge just put your name in the comments section below.

For the more competitive amongst you why not join the CSH Strava page (click here) and compare your progress.

See you out there (bad weather is not an excuse).

(Please note this is not an official club event it’s just an excuse to ride….as if you needed one)

Peacehaven Centenary Cycle Hub

On Friday 23rd February Peacehaven Council will be launching a promotion of their new Centenary Cycle Hub, at The Meridian Centre, between 9 and 4pm.

The event is to promote the new Hub, with exhibitors bringing adapted cycles to try out, revolving around anything Accessible – bikes, charitable causes, community focussed or health-related.

The Mayor will be opening the event, the weekly market is taking place inside the Council Main Hall and Angels Walk Charity will be running a coffee morning in the Council Foyer.

Cycle Seahaven and Dr Bike would like to have a stand at the event. If you would like to help please contact Chair here.
