An R20 'Sunday Escape' in the spirit of the London to Brighton Run
What a difference a couple of weeks makes. The glorious sunshine of early March has turned into a wet and windy day. Nothing would deter our hardy London members, and we benefitted from near empty roads as we headed to the coast. Our route took us up into the hills, hugging the contours and enjoying the misty views, through woodlands and pretty villages. The drive up the switchbacks on Ditchling Beacon was superb with the weather keeping the cyclists at bay. We ascended into the cloud layer for a spirited rive along the top of the downs, before dropping into Brighton.
With half the group on their first club run it was good to see the pure joy and big smiles as we display parked on the iconic Madeira drive, buffetted by the gale force winds. Pictures taken, experiences swapped and we were back in our warm cars for the short hop alomg the coast to our lunch stop at the Ginger Pig in Hove, who did us proud again.
