Camber Sands ride details1 minute read

The sun will surely shine on Camber Sands, a beautiful strip of dunes on the south Sussex coast. It’s a moderately hilly ride from London on a mixture of country lanes and (hopefully quiet) A roads, through the beautiful High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It’s 70 miles from Greenwich to the coast, with an option to join the ride at Sevenoaks for a 45 mile ride.

Date: Sunday 18th June

Time: 08.30 meet for Greenwich departure, 10.45 meet for Sevenoaks departure

Location: Greenwich meet: Cutty Sark. Sevenoaks meet: rail station

Distance: 70 miles from Greenwich, 45 miles from Sevenoaks

Projected arrival time: 1630

Return journey: Trains depart every hour and take an hour and a quarter to reach London St Pancras / Stratford

Weather: hot with a light wind

What to bring: lights for your bike, snacks for the journey, packed lunch, kit for swimming, cash for fish & chips

What to expect: A small, friendly ride at conversational pace. The route is on a mixture of country roads, residential streets and traffic-free cycle paths. Expect a few hills but nothing too strenuous. We’ll reach Camber Sands for a swim in the sea then head back to Rye for a pint and fish and chips, and the return train home.
