A New Type of Ride: Easy Touring

If you’d like to cycle on one of our touring rides but feel they’re a bit too long and/or a bit too quick then you’re in luck! A new type of touring ride is being launched which may appeal to you. Called ‘Easy Touring’, these rides will be shorter and slower than our normal touring […]

Tourers cycle Far and Wide

The tourers cycle to not only local places such as Ripe, Muddles Green and Upper Dicker but also to places further afield such as Bexhill last Thursday, the Viking Trail in North Kent about three weeks ago and Dieppe a couple of weeks ago. Over the next few weeks tourers will be cycling through Belgium […]

Dieppe Channel Hopper

We’re lucky to have a ferry port on our doorstep, so to speak, which means that France is only four hours away. And, of course, the quiet country roads and véloroutes of France are a great place to go cycling. So, with that in mind, nine Cycle Seahaven tourers hopped across the Channel to Dieppe […]

Cycle Seahaven Tourers climb Ditchling Beacon.

Nine club members joined the Road Touring Section’s ride on Easter Sunday and conquered Sussex’s most notorious climb, Ditchling Beacon. Several of the group had never previously managed a ‘non-stop to the top’ before; it would be fair comment to say that some anxiety was expressed and some unfamiliar (to me) self-motivational words were heard […]

1000 Miles of Touring Rides Already This Year

The Touring rides clocked up just over 1000 miles in the first quarter of 2019. There were 31 such rides; that’s the most miles and rides for the first three months of a year since the touring rides started many years ago. That’s partly because of the better weather this year (only a few rides […]

Record Turnout of Tourers

Today’s touring rides to the Lavendar Line railway station at Isfield attracted 16 cyclists. Ten joined the ‘classic’ tourers ride led by Dave Sutton and me; six joined the Tourers ‘Plus’ ride led by Dave Tyler which goes slightly faster. This was a record turnout of members for the touring rides and is in-line with […]

It’s Spring and the Tourers are on a roll!

It’s the first day of Spring, meteorologically speaking, and the tourers are on a roll. We’ve already clocked up 660 miles with 22 rides over the past two months, our best ever start to a new year! Also, the number of members participating in our rides is steadily increasing with last Tuesday’s ride to the […]

A Record January for the Tourers

The tourers clocked up 300 miles with 10 rides in January this year even though there were several cancellations although, not as many as in previous Januarys. This is a record! The weather must be milder! Two years ago, in January 2017 we only managed about half that distance over 7 rides. Hopefully, the milder […]

Cycling UK Affiliate Membership

It has just come to my notice that by becoming an affiliate member of Cycling UK you do not get all the benefits of being a full member. I mention this in case anyone is deciding to become an affiliate member as a result of reading the article in the Cycle Seahaven newsletter about Cycling […]
