Tourers get 2019 off to a Good Start

New Year’s Day was an excellent day for cycling: dry and sunny with virtually no wind. Eight of us cycled to Molly’s Café at Rottingdean for our first touring ride of 2019. It was a normal Tuesday ride for us although our average pace was slightly slower than our usual 12 mph due to the […]

Another Great Year for the Tourers!

For our final touring ride of 2018 we cycled to one of our favourite cafes: the Castle Cottage Tearoom at Pevensey Castle. It has a 1930/40s ambience with appropriate background music; Glen Millar can often be heard playing.

Channel Hopping

Seven tourers met at the Martello Tower this morning; five were going to Horam but the other two decided to head for Newhaven ferry port and hop across The Channel to Dieppe to do a short tour of Upper Normandy. The sea was like a mill pond so they should have had a smooth crossing. […]

Last of the Summer Touring Rides

Autumn was suspended for a few days this week; summer returned! The weather was warm and dry with virtually no wind; superb conditions for cycling. In fact, the lack of wind meant the cycling was easier than usual and we were in danger of exceeding our average touring speed of 12 mph! (We could have […]
