10/06/2017 - Surrey-Sussex - Charity Ride
Weeks to go until event: less than 11 weeks
Pedal to the Pebbles is a 45 mile charity bike ride through the picturesque countryside of the Low Weald in Surrey and Sussex. The ride is raising funds for Hamilton Lodge in Brighton, a school and college for deaf (and hard of hearing) students.
Starting from Connevans (sponsors of the ride, who specialise in audio products and equipment for deaf and hard of hearing people) in Merstham, riders head south on mostly quiet country lanes, through Smallfield, Burstow and Turners Hill. Continuing south, the riders head towards Ardingly and the a waterstop opposite the South of England Show. From there they pass through Scaynes Hill and Wivelsfield Green, entering the National Park near Streat as they come ever closer to the dramatic scarp slope of the South Downs.
After the second waterstop in Plumpton, the ride heads toward Lewes, avoiding the worst of the hills before heading into Brighton along Lewes Road and finishing at Hamilton Lodge School and College Summer Fete.
The ride is fully supported with an emergency phone number, mechanical support, First Aid and help if you or your bike breaks. There are two waterstops where refreshments are free. At the start there is breakfast provided, while there will be lots going on at the finish with the summer fete taking place there.
At the start at Connevans, parking is available nearby on street and Merstham station is less than half a mile away.
