The day started with a slight drizzle as we struck out from the Martello Tower for a circuit of Seaford, but conditions soon cleared up for the rest of the day which remained dry but overcast. Ten of us went Eastwards along Chyngton Road/Way then North up Chyngton Lane to the Alfriston Road. We soon made it to Blatchington Golf Course where we stopped to discuss route options. The ride was intended for beginners but that morning we comprised entirely of more experienced riders, so the decision was taken to ride to Southease for coffee. At the Courtyard café the fancy hot chocolate (whipped cream and marshmallows) went down a treat, as did the cakes and ham & cheese croissants. We returned on the Eastern banks of the river Ouse which we found a little bit tougher than the Western banks due to a few narrower sections and more stiles.
An 18 mile round trip with the usual giggles and jokes.
