The weather’s STILL holding out and we’re expecting yet another fine day for this week’s slow ride on Thursday 2nd Oct. The ground conditions remain dry and dusty, even after the rain we had Monday night and last night.
Starting at the White Lion on Belgrave Road, Seaford at 7pm we ride the back way to Bishopstone via Grand Avenue and along the road to Poverty Bottom pumping station. Up the chalky bridleway to Cantercrow Hill and the long fast descent on the back road to the Flying Fish. After some refreshment we take the flatter and easier route home. We expect to be back at The White lion for 9pm.
Last week we had twelve riders with a range of about 60 years between the youngest and oldest ages – that beat the previous week’s record of only 50 years difference in age.
Good bright lights are needed as it’s starting to get dark by the time we arrive at The Fish. Links to route maps are on our first post about these rides. Click HERE to see it.
If you are a regular rider then please be aware that we go very slowly, so you may be hanging around waiting – especially on Cantercrow hill.
See you there?
