Easy Touring Rides


Would you like to cycle along the country lanes of East Sussex at a comfortable touring pace but without having to climb any major hills; in other words do you prefer cycling on flattish terrain. If so, you’re in luck!

Cyclists touring along the Cuckoo Trail

For a trial period of about a couple of months, many of our Tuesday touring rides will incorporate shorter, flatter routes. The first one will be next Tuesday, 13 March, starting and finishing at the lay-by on Station Rd opposite Arlington Reservoir. The route distance is 11 miles and will include a café stop at Muddles Green, about the halfway point.

Our thinking is that this ‘Easy Touring’ type of ride will appeal to those cyclists who have retired (baby boomers?) and also younger members, if they can arrange some mid–week time off, who want to keep fit and healthy by doing a few miles of cycling each week on routes that won’t prove arduous to cycle along. (We are considering something similar for weekends).

Full details are on the Rides Calendar which includes links to the plotted route on a map and to the cafe’s website. If you’d like more information then please don’t hesitate to contact one of us through our Ride Leader Contact page.

Happy cycling,

Clive Aberdour and Dave Sutton
