Cycle Steps
1. I cycled this old railway line on 4/11/11. The route starts in the rural town of Heathfield where there is ample free roadside parking. This route is ideal for all abilities. It is away from traffic and except for a few short sections very quiet and ideal for small children. The path is shared with dog walkers but we found everybody to be very polite some even stepped to one side to let us pass! The whole route is newish tarmac. There is a pub callled the cuckoos rest about halfway along which looked very tempting. It has a slight slope downhill all the way to Polgate and to be honest I had no problem cycling back chatting with my friend all the way. It is part of the sustrans cycle network and is clearly marked with brown tourist signs at every turn.
