    What sort of cycling we do

    We have easy cycle rides using trains from London to explore unusual places you never knew were there, rather than cycling in chain gangs or rushing through as much tarmac as possible.  

    Together we explore lost railways, cycle ferries, old forts, castles, marshes, canals, ancient churches, winding rivers and wide skies, ancient woods, village greens, old pubs, martello towers, windmills, follies, sea marks, sailing barges, light ships, gun emplacements and more.

    Among the many outdoor events next month...

    Martello Towers and 12th century Abbey Cycle Ride 23 miles 
    We cycle out of Great Bentley south to St Osyths where we stop to look at what remains of the great abbey of St Osyths, then further south to the coast at Seawick where we may stop for coffee.  We then follow Cycle Route 150 through Clacton and Frinton to Walton on the Naze where we pass 5 Martello Towers. When we get to Walton we will explore the Naze nature reserve and admire the fantastic views and the old sea mark tower.

    Lost Sussex railways cycle ride: Three Bridges to Tunbridge Wells 23 miles
    We cycle out of Three Bridges along the Worth Way to East Grinstead  then along Forest Way which is within the High Weald AONB  to Groombridge. Both cycle paths follow the lost railway that once ran between Crawley and Tunbridge Wells. Then we are on minor roads (NCR 18) to Tunbridge Wells.
