Cycle Ride from Sanderstead

Sunday 11th June 2017

A rural cycle adventure riding south from Sanderstead, South Croydon “as far as you like”.

Following close to the East Grinstead line, and later, with enough puff, the Uckfield Line, as far as your legs will carry you, then home on the train to Croydon.

This route also allows you to oversleep and leave later, catching us up on the train, Jason Bourne spy film style.

Some waypoints and landmarks en route:

Riddlesdown – where the train goes into a tunnel and we ride over the downs with great views.

Warlingham and Chelsham – then along the bike lane on side of the Limpsfield Road

Botley Hill – super Surrey Hills views – almost as high as Leith Hill

Clackett Lane, with a lovely view of the M25 Motorway Services

Limpsfield Chart, planned rest break on the green. Then idyllic paved bridleway and quiet lanes along Oast House Kent/Surrey borders

Lingfield by the Race Track

Dormansland

Cowden

Hartfield, suitable pub stop, to get ready to conquer Ashdown Forest

Maresfield. and we are nearly there

Uckfield

(I think that is enough, but you could ride on to Seaford for the full 60 miles)

Meet at Sanderstead Station at 0930, on the ticket office side. I am offering pre-ride bike maintenance services, to check tyres/brakes/gears/ and adjust as needed.

Bring plenty of drinks and some picnic eats. If the forecast is to be believed, also bring sun cream.
