Brighton night ride: details1 minute read

Our first overnight ride! See London from a different perspective as we zoom along streets that are usually packed with traffic, then ride through the countryside in the wee small hours into the sunrise.

Date: Friday 25th March – Good Friday

Time: Midnight

Location: Monument

Distance: 56 miles

Projected arrival time: Approximately 7am on Saturday morning

Return journey: Regular trains throughout the day to various London stations

What to bring: good quality lights (more than one set if you can), spare batteries, snacks, togs for swimming, cash for breakfast, waterproofs just in case

What to expect: A small, friendly ride at conversational pace. The route is mainly on B roads which will be mostly quiet at night time. It’s mostly flat although there are some hills, with the big one near the end: Ditchling Beacon. It’s a killer! The sea at Brighton is fantastic for swimming in, so expect a freezing cold dip at the end and a leisurely stroll around the lovely city of Brighton.

One more thing…

    1. Midnight on Friday night… not Midnight on Thursday night! So, as it finishes. Thanks for the question! I’ve clarified it a bit better in the post now.
