Words and Pictures by Gareth Taylor

Every Wednesday, Velo Café put  on a evening road ride to a variety of places. This weeks was over to Lewes then back to Brighton via Ditchling Beacon. 19 riders left the café on what must have been one of the hottest stickiest days of the year, I was sweating just cycling to the start of the ride.

Some of the group (myself included) had never ridden over the beacon, and luckily most of us didn’t know before the ride that is was on the route so there was no backing out once the ride had started!

The great thing about Velo Café rides, is that they finish back at the Café for pizza (mac & cheese in winter/spring), chips all for £5 plus however much you want to spend on a recovery beer. Click on the picture above the view the full album and original sized pictures.

Check out our calendar on the events page or the Velo Café website for details of their next rides.
