Enjoy the best of Sussex on board a top of the range e-bike with this three-night tour, created in partnership with cycling specialists Cycling for Softies.
Expect peaceful lanes through charming countryside, easy riding along riverside and coastal paths and some spectacular scenery around the South Downs National Park, with plenty of time to relax and enjoy a well earned rest at our hotels in between cycling.
Day 1 – Arrive at Ockenden Manor, Cuckfield
Make your own way to Ockenden Manor in the early afternoon to settle in and head to the Spa. Indulge in a delicious dinner in the hotel’s award-winning restaurant, enjoy a deeply comfortable night’s sleep ready for your cycling adventure to begin in the morning. (Arrive early so you can enjoy a quick practise spin before checking in – please request this in advance)
Day 2 – Cycle Ockenden Manor to Bailiffscourt, Climping – Distance: 40mi/64km
Enjoy breakfast at leisure at Ockenden Manor before checking out. Set off aboard your e-bike for a ride to the coast and arrive at Bailiffscourt for dinner and another fine night’s sleep. The route takes you through Sussex countryside and uses a long stretch of the Downs Link cycle route along the banks of the river Adur, perfect for an easy ride. On the way to the coast you will pass Bramber castle and the South Downs before hugging the coastline for the remainder of the ride. Stopping for an ice cream is optional but recommended!
Day 3 – Cycle Bailiffscourt to The Spread Eagle, Midhurst – Distance: 25mi/40km
After checkout, it is time to leave the coast and make your way to Midhurst. Our route takes you to the impossibly picturesque Arundel Castle, before crossing the South Downs with the help of your e-bikes. On the other side of these marvellous hills the ride passes through gorgeous countryside and quaint hamlets. Arrive in Midhurst with time to look around and settle in before a well-deserved and slap-up supper and well-earned rest at The Spread Eagle, one of the oldest coaching inn’s in the UK.
