Seafront to Rottingdean

Friday 5th July 2013 at 11.00am This is what time the ride will set off. It’s best to get to the starting point at least 15 minutes beforehand to avoid missing the start.

Starting Point & Postcode
Peace Statue (the angel) on the seafront, Kingsway, Brighton, Hove, BN3 2WN Opposite the Embassy Court building and in front of The Meeting Place Cafe  BN3 2WN
Overall Duration On a long ride, it’s sometimes good to have a little break in the middle, or maybe a catch up at the beginning or end to keep it sociable. This means that the overall ride duration may be longer than the actual cycling time.
1 hours 30 mins  (1 hours 10 mins cycling)

Breeze Bike Rides in Brighton

Feel the sea air on your face with a ride along the seafront and cake in Ovingdean or Rottingdean. This is a gentle ride along Brighton seafront. Using the Sustrans National Route 2, we'll use seafront cycle paths to get from the Peace Statue at the border between Brighton and Hove to the outdoor cafe on the under cliff path in Ovingdean or a cafe in Rottingdean (and then back again after some of their delicious cake!).

The route is all flat, but the wind can make cycling in one direction a bit harder than the other.

We really welcome newcomers to our rides; we will always ride at the pace of the slowest rider so no one is left behind. If you want to see what the route is like, here's a video we made when we rode this as a family friendly ride in February:

It's a good idea to bring some water and you may also want to bring a snack (though we will be stopping at a cafe for cake and a drink!). Dress appropriately for the weather: in cool weather it's good to wear lots of thin layers, so you can add/remove them as needed; a rain jacket is a good idea too!

Look forward to seeing you there.

Meet the Champions

  • Alison Lewis
    Alison Lewis Hi! I'm Alison, and looking forward to meeting you on one of the Breeze rides I lead from Brighton, Hove, and mid-Sussex. I've ridden bikes on and off ever since it was my transport to secondary school as a teenager. I became more active as a ride leader, coach, and spokeswoman for local cycling issues after a friend had a cycling accident in 2010. My favourite solo rides are long, including touring, but the Breeze rides I lead can be as short as 5 mile beginner rides. Let me know if there's a particular type of ride you'd like me to lead ...
