Sunday Social – 13th July 2014

Our ride started from Seaford’s Martello Tower at 6pm. A stiff on-shore breeze felt very good on this muggy evening with glimpses of sunshine through lots of cloud cover. Five riders headed East along the seafront road before turning down Cliff Gardens to follow National Cycle Route 2. We followed the alternative NCN2 route down through the fields between the A259 and the sea until we reached Exceat bridge. After crossing the bridge we went left onto Litlington Road, taking the quiet lanes to the Sussex Ox. The outward journey was 6.5 miles on mostly flat ground in 50 minutes. After a long refreshment break we did a spot of bike maintenance (gear and saddle adjustment) before heading back to Seaford. With Joe Callard (aged 10) leading the pack we got home with a slightly quicker journey time of 40 minutes. The conditions stayed dry and warm, and the cooling wind was much gentler away from the coast. A lovely way to end the weekend.

    We took the alternative NCN2 route because this time all riders had off-road capable bikes. If you have a road bike then similar rides would take a more suitable, but equally enjoyable route.
