A Record Year for The Tourers

2019 was a record year for the tourers: 137 touring rides covering just over 4500 miles. That’s 17 more than in each of the previous two years and 34 more than in 2016. Ideally, we should run 150 rides per year; that’s because we try to run three touring rides per week, on Tuesday, Thursday […]

A Highly Convivial Tourers’ Christmas Meal

A record number of 36 were at the Cycle Seahaven Tourers’ Christmas Meal in the British Legion yesterday evening. It was our fifth year in succession at the Legion and we’ll certainly be returning there for our Christmas meal next year. It’s terrific value for money and the bar and serving staff are amazing: excellent […]

Another Record for the Tourers

2019 is turning out to be a good year for  touring rides. There have been more such rides than at this time in any previous year. Also, there is an upward trend of cyclists participating in them. Today’s ride to Horam attracted thirteen Cycle Seahaven members, a record number for a touring ride. It’s good […]

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 […]
