Sunday 18th May: the scene was set. A beautiful English Summer’s day stretched out before us. What better way to spend it then than a cycle from London to Brighton culminating in the climb to end all climbs up up Ditchling Beacon, the third-highest point on the South Downs?
We started our trip from Sutton (Surrey); a short train ride from Balham, South-West London. Having previously attempted to complete the route direct from South-West London and had to turn around at Hayward’s Heath, we were all too aware of the potential for delay caused by weekend congestion on London roads.
Richard donned the Peloton® men’s Polzeath jersey for the outing. It certainly caught the eye as we whipped through a series of Sussex villages on our approach to the seafront.
The highlight of the day was in the village of Bletchingley, when Nick Gates, (wildlife photographer, presenter, producer and journalist) sporting his University cycle team jersey, asked if Richard could look after his loose change as he didn’t have any zip pockets to hand. Why not take a closer looks at Peloton® cycling jersey’s comprehensive features here.
