A busy day for Cycle Seahaven

Saturday, 20 July 2019 was the busiest day for Cycle Seahaven so far this year.

During the morning we hosted the annual ‘Women’s Festival of Cycling’ Ladies Ride. The club trailer was used to transport the bikes to Heathfield after which the ladies cycled back along the Cuckoo Trail to Seaford, via the Arlington Tea Rooms.

At Peacehaven’s Big Park the Dr Bike mechanics were ready and waiting for whatever the locals had to offer. This was followed by the second ‘members-only’ maintenance workshop, this second one focused on puncture repairs.

At the same time we ran two Ride the Downs rides from Big Park, with four return riders and two new riders. Two of whom joined the club making a total of nine new members in the last week.

Meanwhile, in Friston Forest, the CSH family ride got underway with kids of all ages doing their thing and enjoying the single tracks. 

And if all that wasn’t enough we finished the day with the CSH summer BBQ.  It was great to see so many road riders there! Good food, good beer and great company. 

What an amazing day! Thank you to all the people that helped make it happen.

Well done Cycle Seahaven! I was one of those who enjoyed a ‘Ride the Downs’ ride with the ever patient and helpful Gray. Uphill into a strong headwind and still doable with an e-bike – what an amazing outreach organisation you are.

On that same day we also had the opening of Newhaven’s new pump track, campaigned for by club member Jon Younghusband. Prizes were handed out for achievements like ‘fastest lap’, two of which were won by club members.
An amazing day.
