- London to Brighton Evening ride (17:00 – 23:00)
Has anyone cycled to Brighton from London during rush hour? I want to cycle near the summer solstice (June 21st) from London leaving Tower Bridge at 17:00 then aim to be in Brighton for 23:00.
Everyone seems to think I’m crazy to try it. Be great to hear any experience of the route around theses times.Posted 1 year agoStraightlinerSubscriber
Should be fine once past Croydon as you will then start to get quieter roads as route options and it will become altogether more pleasant.
Be aware that if you plan to return by train GTR (Southern Rail, Thameslink) aren’t running all* of the timetabled services at the moment so getting back may be a challenge.
* – Even a decent chunk of ‘all’ might be acceptable, right now it’s a shambles.Posted 1 year agodovebikerMember
Try the offroad route? I’ve ridden the Downslink at night and very nearly got taken out by a badger at Partridge Green – it just shot out of the bushes and missed my wheel by cm. Once I got to Steyning, I picked up the SDW, rode to Eastbourne to get to Tesco Express as it was opening @ 6am – sat on the pavement outside stuffing my face with pork pies. Got back on my bike and rode home again.Posted 1 year ago
