Note: New meeting time of 10:45.
The ride starts at Battle, following mostly quiet B roads through delightful rolling hills, woodlands and "hidden" valleys to Brightling.
Passing through Brightling with its strange obelisks, domes and towers.
Views from Brightling are great and from there we make a long descent to Robertsbridge.
Next leg is Robertsbridge to Bodiam - crossing the A21, but on lanes throughout.
From Bodiam we climb to Ewhurst Green (lunch at the White Dog).
From there its flattish country to Beckley and then we take a very small lane down to Brede - this is really pretty through the Beckely Woods and a lovely quiet valley.
There is a steady climb from Brede - with glimpses of the coast and from Selescombe a long climb back to Battle.
There should be time to have tea and cake in Battle.
There are some steady climbs, but well worth it when you reach the tops.
Distance: 33 miles.
