London to Brighton - 7th May 2020

Ride leader:  Adrian

One of the original Friday Night Ride destinations, and definitely a classic not to be missed.  Our Brighton ride has everything and for some of you it’ll be the highlight of the year.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  For 2020 this ride will be on the night of Thursday 7th May, arriving in Brighton on Friday 8th May, the early May Day bank holiday.

It’s late Spring, so we can hope the weather will be good.  After we escape London, we’ll drop off the North Downs on small lanes before arriving at our half way stop, the superb 1st Burstow scouts “hut” in Horley - which we call ‘The Edifice’ because it’s magnificent and ideal for us. 

 

Then we come to the main event - Ditchling Beacon. Some of us will be quite happy to walk it, others have travelled from far away places specifically to ride up this legendary piece of Sussex tarmac.

 

After pausing to admire the views, we’ll head down into Brighton. We pass a speed camera. Sometimes we make it flash.

 

Registration for this ride will open nearer the time.  In the meantime you can read the 2019 ride report.
