Cruise to Carats and back - beginners and family friendly ride

Sunday 2nd September 2012 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 0 mins cycling)
Breeze Bike Rides
Guided Rides Great routes and support from trained leaders


Breeze Bike Rides in Brighton

Blow away the cobwebs with this family friendly ride along Hove seafront. Using the Sustrans National Route 2, we'll use mainly seafront cycle paths to get from the Peace Statue at the border between Brighton and Hove to Carat's cafe in Southwick (and then back again after some refreshments!).

The route is all flat, but the wind can make cycling in one direction a bit harder than the other; the wind usually blows in the direction that makes returning to Hove from Southwick much easier, thankfully.

Feel free to bring your children along (but note that under 16s must wear a cycling helmet to join in).

Wearing a helmet for adults is also advisable; if you don’t have one please do not to worry you can still take part.  If you enjoy the bike ride and would like to come again perhaps you could look to buy one then. 

It's a good idea to bring some water and you may also want to bring a snack (though we will be stopping at Carat's cafe for cake and 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! 

We really welcome newcomers to our rides; we will always ride at the pace of the slowest rider so no one is left behind.

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 ...
