Tried this route at the weekend and really enjoyed it. There were a couple of times when a mounatin bike would have been better if not essential. I'm not sure how we escaped without any punctures! There are quite a few hills and one particularly steep one going into Friston Forest but we made it. Thanks for posting the route!

I cycled to Blackboys today for the first time ever. Then when I got home, I found this route, so I shall follow it next time, as it seems easier than the route I took. I went up and over Firle Beacon and down through Glynde and Ringmer, which took 4 hours from Seaford. I am more than happy to post the route I took, if anyone would like to try it for more of a challenge. There are a lot more hills and cross country cycling, with some fantastic views from the beacon.
