Cycling in Sussex features 20 rides, between 4km and 28km, exploring the quiet lanes and off-road trails of one of the most beautiful counties in the UK.
Written by local family cyclists, Deirdre Huston and Marina Bullivant, the rides are clearly described using step-by-step instructions and feature original maps, route profiles and local area information. The book is illustrated with inspirational and inviting photography of the rides and the local area.
Together with information about local railway trails and seafront trails, the authors have also put together a selection of rides specifically designed for families based on their own personal experiences with their children.
