Getting ready to leave.

Through Friston Forest.

About 30 easy miles, starts and ends in Polegate, East Sussex near Eastbourne. From Polegate we meander up the Cuckoo Trail (an old railway track) to Horam for coffee. Then take lanes across the Weald to Berwick, with Firle Beacon on the South Downs firmly in view and have lunch. We then ride down the Cuckmere valley to the beach at Cuckmere Haven and possible swim if warm and the tide is in. The last part of the ride is off-road through Friston Forest back to Polegate. Jane will be leading.
