There’s a ride suitable for everyone this Easter weekend!
The weekend begins on Thursday evening at 19:00 with the pub ride. This week it’s the Cuckmere Inn, via Bo-Peep, Alfriston and Littlington. Giving a shorter return journey to the White Lion afterwards!
Friday evening is the Friston Forest single track at 19:30:
Open to anyone wanting to gain single track/trail experience as well as anyone who enjoys single track/trail riding. There will likely be mixed abilities, so for people who are experienced they can ride ahead and wait at end of trails whilst the less experienced will be led by me to gain skills, speed and confidence.
Saturday is a busy day with Dr Bike at The Big Park in Peacehaven from 10:00 until 12 noon, followed immediately by the first Introduction Ride of the year with Ride the Downs
… a great opportunity to dust of the bike and begin the season. They’ll last around 60 minutes and involve bike handling skills to include: mounting and dismounting, setting off and stopping, gear changing, braking, cornering, hand signals and slow speed control…
From 14:00 to 16:00 there’s the first Family Forest Ride of the season, kicking off with the East Egg Hunt! Registration is essential for this ride, please click the link above for more information.
The event is free however, you will need to pay for parking if you drive to the start point. We will meet at the first forest car park at 2:00 pm and take the family route around the forest, stopping half way round for an egg hunt in the field.
tion is required if you are going to attend as we need to know the number of riders and children in advance.
Sunday has a 3D touring ride climbing up Ditchling Beacon, a 2B MTB Funday ride into the forest and an Intermediate/Sportive ride to Hassocks via the Coast. They all meet at 08:30 at the Martello Tower in Seaford.
Monday has a 45 mile MTB ride being planned. It’s apparently all ‘local’ so will have drop-out points along the route for those that can’t, for whatever reason, complete the whole ride. Keep an eye on the calendar for more details!
