Overview

A hilly South Downs route (900m ascent) starts with a trip to Wilmington Hill and the Long Man. We will stop in the lovely village of Alfriston, bring a packed lunch. After lunch we will take a hilly route through Friston Forest followed by marking today's "Eurosong" final by ascending a Lovely Horse! Pub and/or fish and chips on the beach at the end. Paddling opportunities for those who are down for that sort of thing.
