Hi,

So who is up for a xmas south downs ride?

I was thinking a run along the SDW from amberley to brighton ( or eastbourne for the fit types!)

My thinking is by starting at amberly, there is a station, so people can bail at shoreham, brighton, lewes or go all the way to eastbourne, depending on fitness/ hangover/ amount of mincepies consumed, then get the train back to amberley.

Also, folks can get down from london etc.

So, anyone....

Depends on the date, but this sounds like a fab idea.

Aces!!!

Ok, I'm off on holiday on saturday for 10 days, so we'll sort out some dates when I get back.

If december is difficult, we could always do it in January? might be good to help get rid of our xmas bellies!

It's up to you lot. :D

If you can make it onto the sdw via Amberly in december you're doing well, it's normally a 45 degree ice rink!!! I assume that's what Wu Tangled is talking about....

I used to live in Storrington so know that part of the Downs well, I could even show you the infamous Downhill of Doom as featured in the 'owwwwwwwwwww' thread

Sounds good though, as I'm doubtful for the downs ride in a few weeks
