Cycling appears to be everywhere at the moment, what with the Tour de France starting off in Yorkshire last month, the commonwealth games in Glasgow coming to a close last week and the Tour of Britain coming to East Sussex in September, with Hailsham , Eastbourne and Newhaven all on the route for stage 7.
Which makes it even more fitting that we have just launched our very own cycle ride for 2015. The Chestnut Sussex 100 will take to the roads of East Sussex on Sunday 12 October, starting at Bentley Wildfowl and Motor Museum.
We have two routes on offer; a challenging 100 km route, featuring one of the UK’s top 100 climbs, ‘Kidd’s Hill’, and a flatter friendlier 60 km route.
We are looking forward to welcoming a wide range of participants, from seasoned cyclists to first-timers. So, whether you are an experienced cyclist or relatively new to the pedals and looking to challenge yourself, get your spokes spinning for Chestnut Tree House and register at www.chestnut-tree-house.org.uk/Sussex100
