The Shark - 202km ride to Seaford & back on the south coast

Saturday, 14th April 2018 at 8am - 7pm

Location: McDonald’s, Leytonstone High road

This event is in the past.

Meet at 7:55 at Walthamstow Central overground and get the 8:02 to Liv St.  Cycle to London Bridge and get the first train to Chelsfield. Cycle to Cudham to meet with the rest of the gang on onwards cycle to the south coast and back again via a slightly different route. 

For those wishing to stretch their legs a bit more, there is this 202km ride through South Downs to the coast and back. Plenty of hill climbs for practice purposes for those of us going to Scotland in June. Won’t be a fast ride though, will be a steady run out, plus lunch at the seaside and a steadier ride back home.

Please note this is not part of the organised Audax, we are just folllowing the route.

Matt, Rich.
Dwight and Ii could meet up with you at Cudham, which is on the route. Need to liase a time. I think it will take us less than 2 hours to cycle there from Leytonstone

from Leytonstone:
from West Croydon:
from West Croydon to Cuckmere:
from West Croydon to Beachy Head:

I looked at going to 3 Bridges as Dwight suggested but that takes way too much mileage, including serious crest just south of Croydon.

I'm wary of doing the whole hog starting and finishing at Leytonstone. But we could start at Leytonstone and finish at West Croydon. I'd rather add 6-7 miles to jump off Beachy Head, than Londonthankyouverymuch.

Rich, watcha thinque?

I'm thinking of riding from Leytonstone, and perhaps get train back. Don't think the route out via Greenwich is too bad.

Who's coming? See all
