Offroad would be good (MM 'training', see) but happy to go with road if that's preferred.

I'm away this weekend else I'd be keen.

There's some lovely rising in the downs that's a bit like eastnor, loads of good singletrack up at Stanmer Park too.

Have fun, and stay away from Dr Brightons...

Seafront and downs combo with cake stops thrown in?


I was going to sugest seafront cruse and ice cream but this sounds like a very good idea.

How about something like:

Start at Brighton Station, up and over the downs, perhaps stop in Steyning for that real China cup and cakestand experience. Then up to Chanctonbury before a roll back along the river to Shoreham and into town along the seafront (perhaps via Carats).

Winds from the West, so more difficult on the outbound part but 'air-taxi' on the way back into Brighton. Weather forecast:
