Cycling and plants, a perfect combination

At very long last, I have finally put the collection-visiting Sussex bike rides onto the website. They are both quite long, but offer excellent value in terms of collections per ride.

The Haywards Heath ride covers 8 Collections and offers you the best of the High Weald landscape (and hills- sorry). It also passes all of the 4 Great Gardens of Sussex and the Bluebell Railway.

The Chichester ride is more modest in terms of Collections, a mere 5; but offers you a wonderful tour of covering parts of the South Downs, and the seaside. If you are in need of beaches to sit on, the Witterings  are nearby; if you are a birder there are some bird hides on route by the marina.

Both rides offer a plethora of pubs and cafes- and can be reached by rail (Haywards Heath and Chichester stations are both on the main line from London).

We are hoping to do some more in different areas over time, but these have been done especially for the National AGM which is in Sussex at the end of the month.
