This is one of the events organised as part of BIG Summer Camp 2022.

Join Will on a Sunday leisure ride to Brighton Pier for a lunch and if you have been well behaved; a stick of rock and candy floss.  We will follow National Cycle Route 2 the entire way along the coast line, passing Worthing and it's pier, Shoreham-on-Sea and finally into Brighton.  The route should be relatively traffic free and signposted.

It is a 30km flattish cycle into Brighton and should take a couple of hours. We will stop for tea and cake along the way and grab lunch in Brighton, likely fish and chips on the beach.  If the weather is fine, we will likely stop for a swim or two when the mood take us, maybe at the nudist beach in Brighton :-) 

You will have a couple of options on arrival at Brighton; either cycle 30km back to base or catch a train from Brighton to Angmering (the closest train station to the rugby club).  There are approximately 3 trains an hour and you don't have to book a cycle spot, though we may have to space ourselves over a few services.  If you think 30km is too much, you can jump on the train at any point along the coastline (we pass close to approx 12 stations). 

The route is viewable here.

Any bike will be suitable for this excursion, as it's flat and surfaced.  You would probably be most comfortable on a hybrid, gravel or road bike.  Electric bikes are welcome.  You will need to bring your own bike and helmets are mandatory.
