Elevenses at the Brick Kiln

There is no off road cycling before elevenses. After elevenses the off road sections are as follows:

  • The bridleway between the A27 and North Mundam School on B2166;
  • Cycle route between Fishery & Sidlesham on farm tracks some concrete and some unsealed;
  • Permissive bridleway on old tram route round Pagham Harbour RSPB Centre;
  • Selsey to Earnley Grange via Medmerry marshes;
  • Chichester Marina to Appledram on cycle route.

None of the off road sections are difficult. The last stretch to Sidlesham can get a little slippery after a lot of rain. Last time I used this route part of the Tram Way permissive bridleway was a little overgrown. AT least 28cm section tyres are advisable. Its a little harder work than on the road but is still an easy ride.

This is a November New Moon ride with high water at around 2-30 pm. Providing the weather is good there is likely to be interest for those with ornithological interests both alongside Pagham Harbour and on Medmerry Marshes.

About Saturday and Wednesday rides

Rides from Havant with stops for elevenses, lunch and sometimes tea. Average speed is 11-12 mph; if you're slower, someone will wait for you.

If you'd prefer not to do the full day ride, you're welcome to join us as far as the elevenses stop and come back from there. Please make sure the ride leader knows that's what you intend to do so we can make sure someone is available to come back with you.

Larger rides split into multiple groups:

  • A fast group that takes a longer and/or hillier route to the elevenses stop
  • The rest of the main ride which takes a more direct route to the elevenses stop
  • An elevenses ride comprised of riders going only to elevenses; the elevenses ride will have its own ride leader and might go to a different destination if the route to the main elevenses destination is long and/or hilly

The rides are informal and riders are free to join and leave the ride at various points. Some ride directly to the elevenses stop.
