This year's edition of the Wheelers' London to Brighton ride. This is a slightly different route to last year, starting with a gentle route over the North Downs, and lunch at Lingfield (choice of eating places). Then on to Ditchling Beacon and down to Brighton. Time for a cup of tea, an ice-cream and a swim before returning to London by train. Single ticket is £10 or £5 with Groupsave via Thameslink services.
Two meeting points - 08.15 at Cutty Sark Gardens for a 08.30 departure or 09.45 at Orpington station for a 10.00 departure. The ride out from Cutty Sark will be via fairly main roads. Trains to Orpington are every 15 mins from London Bridge and you can use Oyster PAYG. Please contact the leader (Alex) in advance if you want to meet there.
Updated info: There should be three food/drink stops but no cash machines! So bring cash, and also feel free to bring a picnic if you prefer, plus snacks and drinks just in case. The weather forecast is good for swimming.
