Hi all. Thinking of doing a last-minute SDW trip over the next two or three days, and was hoping for some advice on the route and places to stay.
First off, the direction. I'm guessing that West to East makes the most sense, given the prevailing wind?
Also we'd be travelling from London via train, so what stations would we need at each end? Winchester and Eastbourne, or are there smaller local stations that are closer to the route?
Finally, do people have recommendations of bike-friendly places to stay along the way? (With secure bike storage, obviously.) I guess this will largely depend on whether we're going to do it in two or three days. I know there's lots of climbing, but we're both pretty fit. What do people suggest?
