The annual Windrush London to Brighton is upon us!
We'll meet at the lido as usual at 9am, and partake on this iconic route down to Brighton. The distance is about 85km and is a pretty straight shoot through South London, Surrey/Sussex, and finishing in Brighton b the pier. The route is a bit hilly - and we'll be tacking the Ditchling Beacon route (as steep at the famous Mt Ventoux), but fear not as we'll take a pace suitable for all involved. Depending on timing and demand we might stop for cake & coffee, but the idea is to get there for lunchtime fish & chips on the beach!
We'll hop on the train home from Brighton to Clapham Junction (its not too expensive), or for those who still have the legs - you can cycle back, but this won't be guided - please beware.
