ride by Liz and Ken

After a damp and dull Saturday we were pleased that the forecast for a sunny Sunday proved correct as the 6 tandems and 1 solo gathered at our house. It was nice to welcome Richard and Hilary on their first ride out with the club. There were nice views out to sea with a few yachts racing just off the shore as we headed east through Pevensey Bay. We had a pleasant coffee break at the aptly named Chilley Farm then headed north across the levels which was even chillier into the fresh northerly wind. A few gentle climbs took us through Herstmonceux to our lunch stop in Cowbeech. The return route was almost to Horam and then down the Cuckoo Trail, through Hailsham where there was a brief stop to purchase suet! Then back through Hampden Park to the start and tea and cakes. A pleasant and not too taxing 40 miles or so.
