Combined Road and Worth Way
Ride on Sunday 23rd Jan starting at Three Bridges Station at 10:00am. We will ride the Worth Way to Imberhorne Lane to meet up with leader Ros at 10:45. Ros will then lead us on a ride on some of the lanes of Ashdown Forest. We will have a refreshment stop at Heaven Farm.
A short slow-paced ride along cycle tracks and narrow lanes, south of Crawley. Medium (some hills), 25 miles (+optional extra)
Leaving Three Bridges station cycle racks at 10:00, we will take the Worth Way and then ascend towards Turners Hill before turning back West before heading South along Back Lane with far reaching views to the South Downs. After taking the aptly named Stoney Lane we climb away from Balcombe before another long descent towards Staplefield.
Depending on the weather and the speed of the group we will then choose our route back through Slaugham and Pease Pottage. Depending on the make-up of the group we may split into two groups with one group taking an extra loop.
We aim to get back into Crawley at 13:30, when the quarterly runslist meeting will be hosted. There will be simple hot food provided and we will devise the schedule of rides for the April, May and June in front of wood burning stove.
32 mile road ride to the club's favourite cafe, Ruby's at Capel.
Ruby's cafe has indoor and outdoor seating.
The ride is graded medium-hard as it goes up and around Leith Hill, but we will ride the easiest route of the eight possible routes in the "Leith Hill Octopus". This ride is an excellent opportunity for new riders to go up Leith Hill, a favourite for cyclists in Surrey and Sussex. We will ride slowly and rest regularly. Walking up is fine. We welcome everybody on this ride and new riders can take the opportunity to ride or walk up Leith Hill and enjoy the beauty of this scenic area of South East England that we are fortunate to have on our doorstep.
