It was a chilly morning for the Spring Equinox on Sunday but that didn’t deter eleven Cycle Seahaven members from jumping on their road bikes and going for a ride to Lakeside Café at Horam. There were two groups: seven Sportives (average speed of 17 mph) who took a fairly long route via Laughton, Blackboys and Waldron, and four Tourers (average speed of 12½ mph) who took a more direct and therefore shorter route via Hailsham. Both groups left the Martello Tower in Seaford at the same time and arrived at the café in Horam within a few minutes of each other. Good timing! There had been rather fresh north-easterly breeze blowing so a warm drink was most welcome. The return ride to Seaford was much easier, being mostly downhill or flat with a tailwind.
This proved to be a super Sunday morning bike ride and hopefully the start of a run of such rides through to the Autumn Equinox and beyond. (There have been rather too many cancellations over the past few months due to bad weather). That said, the Touring ride next weekend (Easter) will be on Saturday morning instead of Sunday morning.
