Ladies (and Snowmen) Ride

February’s Ladies Ride will be stopping for coffee, cake and cackles at the Big Park, in Peacehaven this month.

Your Ride Leaders, Sarah Winser and Kate Carver will meet you on the Cycle Path at the bottom of Edinburgh Road on Seaford Seafront for a prompt departure at one o’clock. 

The route will take you along the cycle path to Newhaven, via the riverbank to Piddinghoe, a short hop on the C7 to Deans Farm, and then road to the Industrial Estate where you’ll come into the Big Park via the North side of the park.

After the refreshments, you’ll return home via The Highway.

As always, the Ladies Rides are a comfortable ride, ridden at the pace of the slowest rider and no-one is left behind. It’s a great way for ladies to introduce themselves to the group, and if you haven’t been on a ride before, then you’ll make some wonderful friends and be looking forward to the next by the time you’ve finished!

Essential Kit:
Spare Inner Tube
Lights and Helmet
Lock

Ladies Ride: Alfriston Christmas!

The next Ladies ride will be on Saturday 1st December to Alfriston’s Christmas Event.

Get yourself to Seaford’s Martello Tower at the east end of the seafront on Saturday morning, ready to depart at 11am. The route will be mostly tarmac, but with grass and gravel thrown in – so be prepared for some mud! 

With about one and a half to two hours to wander around the shops and partake in different refreshments, it should be a great way to get into the Christmas spirit! Don’t forget to take a bike lock as you won’t want to be wandering around with it whilst you’re there.

You’ll be leaving at about 2.30pm, returning to the Martello Tower in Seaford.

As always, you’ll need a helmet. Don’t forget a spare inner tube – there’s lots of thorns about at the moment, and as the weather could be dull and may even be starting to get dark during the ride you’ll need lights: both front and back. Please ensure that they’re fully charged before you set off, too!

As always, the ride is on the calendar and the ride leaders Sarah and Kate can be contacted via the Ride Leader contact page.

They look forward to seeing you on Saturday!

It’s safe to say that the Fireworks BBQ went off with a bang… [sorry]

After a wet and windy beginning to November, the weather gods blessed us with a calm clear night for the End of Season BBQ. The revellers arrived dressed in layers to keep warm and thoroughly enjoyed the Hot Chocolate & Mulled Wine (whilst they lasted)!

Harveys ‘Bonfire Boy’ and ‘Best’ Bitters were on tap, along with wines and spirits to keep the festivities flowing (thanks Tracey Martin for running the bar) along with sausages and burgers from the BBQ (Thanks Paul Williams for the cooking skills). Denis Bass brought his infamous Chilli which went down, as always, a treat.

It was lovely to see families, and so many road riders, too! The firework display was wonderful, (see a clip of it here) and children young and not so young, had great fun with the sparklers! Well done Harvey Lock for being chief marshmallow ‘chef’ and of course thanks to Wendy & Alan Wells for the loan of their fire pit. It was a godsend!

Many thanks to the Bretts for hosting and of course, none of it would have happened without the superb organisational skills of Kirsty Forcey.

See  you in a few weeks at the next event: The Christmas Party!
