Touring Rides

Spring is here and the weather is warming up so it’s a great time to go cycling. There’s certainly no shortage of easy touring and touring rides; there have been just over 40 already this year. If you haven’t been on an easy/touring ride then why not try one.

There’s not much difference between theses two two types of ride. Easy touring rides are, as the name implies, run at a slightly more relaxed pace and are usually over less hilly terrain.

The rides are every Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday of each week and we usually aim to run both types on theses days. They aren’t just about the cycling. We always stop at a cafe or tearoom/garden for a rest and a chat over a cup of tea/coffee, cake etc.

Our rides go to a variety of places over a wide range of distances. The easy touring rides on Tuesdays tend to be our shortest rides, going to nearby places such as Ripe, Upper Dicker, and Muddles Green. Rides on the other days go furthsr afield: Pevensey Castle, Bexhill and Isfield (Lavender Line) are firm favourites. Some rides, over 50 miles go to Worthing, Hastings and Littlehampton.

Full details of each ride, including a link to a plotted route which you can download onto your GPS device or mobile phone, are on the club calendar.

Hope to see you on an easy touring or touring ride soon.

Happy touring,
