THIS IS RIDE EIGHT OF NINE IN OUR 'SOFA TO SPORTIVE' SERIES - going from 10 to 40 miles over 9 weeks, to get you ready for a cycling challenge, charity ride, or holiday.

This is a TOURING TANGERINE ride aimed at experienced riders, 9 - 10 mph on varied roads with more hills.

This is one of the longer Breeze rides from Brighton & Hove, using a combination of busier roads (through Rottingdean), quiet roads, and cycle paths.

We hug the seafront using Sustrans National Cycle Route 2, so the views can be stunning on a good day! There are hills, including a steep one into Newhaven - note that you need to be a confident and competent cyclist for this ride - is it NOT for beginners!

You have the option of catching the train back from Newhaven if you're tired by the time we get to Seaford, and we have a café stop on the beach at Seaford, so bring money. Also bring water, snacks, and waterproof. Limit how much other stuff you bring though as it will slow down you down on the steep hills.

Do, however, bring a spare inner tube for your bike (easier to change an inner tube than fix a puncture by the side of the road, and all bikes are different so you need one to fit your bike).
If you're not sure what an inner tube is, or how to know which size to buy, this little video should help you: https://youtu.be/3uzsEystB-Q
