I am a member of the Brighton & Hove Clarion Cycling Club. Over the years I have led many rides in Sussex and occasionally beyond. I prepare detailed directions to enable me or anyone else to follow the route, and after each ride I upload the corresponding file to this website so that the ride can be repeated. I also upload rides created by others in the club, with their permission. Feel free to try any of them out if you want!

(Note that the more recent files are based on a spreadsheet which calculates mileages and durations on the basis of a practice ride, with adjustments to the timing to take into account the relative slowness of a club ride compared with an individual. This is why the times appear to be ridiculously accurate – in Excel, you can multiply a time by a “stretch factor” but you can’t then round it up or down!)
