Post subject:  Brighton - Eastbourne SDW End of september.

Soooo, i'm turning 40 next month (Yes, I know, I dont look a day over 30), and in way of celebration (and proving to myself i'm not past it yet, sonny), i'm inviting you all to join me on a ride from Brighton to Eastbourne along the SDW.

Weekend of the 29th/30th. Either day for me, so whatever suits you guys.

The ride itself will start at Devils Dyke and head eastward along the SDW, it will be around 30 miles with typical South Downs Climbs, with a tea and cake stop at Alfriston. Upon arrival at Eastbourne I propose a tinny or two on the beach, and then get the train back to Brighton.

Fancy it, then?

More flipping holidays than the queen! :lol:

Did a reccy ride today, was hard going in places (although I did have a few beers over the weekend :oops: ), but nothing too taxing. Awesome views too, and got talking to a fella on the train with a nice Roberts tourer. A good day.

Not ridden over that way for ages.

All being well I will be in the States that weekend at the Fat Chance reunion but if for whatever reason the wheels fall of that then I will come along

Sounds interesting, I would be up for this, I hope it doesn't fizzle out the way the last SDW ride did. :roll:

Righto Chaps,

I'm thinking the saturday for this as the trains will be more frequent/less chance of engineering work etc.

Are you two still up for it? I think Danno will be coming along too :D

If anybody fancies it, but doesn't think they can do the whole distance, there are plenty of chances to bail, as the SDW follows the railway all the way to eastbourne.

No card and pressies required, however, if we are not p1ssed by the time we reach ditchling beacon, then its not a birthday ride....
