The Surrey and Sussex Section has four divisions. The primary division, Surrey and Sussex, which meets every Tuesday and Friday, except Christmas Day. The second division is known as Surrey and Sussex Sunday, meeting every Sunday. The third division is known as Surrey Kent Sussex Borders (SKS Borders), meeting on two Wednesdays per month, and the fourth division, South West Sussex, newly formed late 2013, to provide rides, currently one or two per month, in the South Downs, the Western Weald, and the Coastal Plain, generally East of the Arun.
The Runs Lists (excepting the Sunday Section) show a morning meet at a cafe and a lunch venue at a pub. There is a group ride from the cafe to the lunch venue, the route for which is agreed between the participants.
In practice, due to the wide area from which our active riders are drawn, many find it convenient to meet in the morning at the cafe, or alternatively to ride directly to the lunch venue. This leaves a relatively small number of riders joining the group ride from cafe to pub.
From April to October, monthly on Wednesdays, we have a train or car assisted ride to take us out of our usual cycling area. These rides are included in the Midweek Rides Runs List.
Our Section is very informal. For group riding the routes are designed to take maximum advantage of the relative quiet and scenic aspects of the country lanes of Surrey and Sussex, avoiding as far as possible the busy main roads. New members are welcome and may simply turn up at the cafe or lunch meets whenever the date and destination suits.
This web site provides a common resource for all of the supporting information you are likely to need in the form of Maps and a Cross Referencing List of our venues. We also have a photo gallery.
Runs Lists for all four sections can be accessed from the menu at the left of this page.
Appraisal of the Yorkshire Pudding
As of Xmas lunch December 2015, marking the second year barren of a Yorkshire Pudding, it is hoped that an alternative Xmas Lunch venue for 2016, will enable this competition to continue!
Christmas dinners/lunches would not be complete without Yorkshire Pudding on the plate. This series, to be annually added to, will demonstrate the standard of the Yorkshire Pudding wherever the 40+CC Surrey&Sussex Section, takes it's Xmas lunch.
To date it would appear that the 2012 vintage is in the lead. Is Yorkshire Pudding allowable with turkey, as in the 2013 vintage, even with a curly parsnip?
