Cycle Steps
This route follows the NCN cycle route, with some changes. It is a mixed route that althogh mostly quiet lanes, also has off road tracks, etc. The majority of the route is flat or gently rolling, however, the reason for the high difficulty score is two challenging hills. The first is at Hastings (The Ridge) Fairlight hill, which although challenging, is "all up" relatively short. The latter, on the road from Alfriston to Seaford, is more awkward, as it starts with a gentle rise, which gets steeper, then goes steep down into a gully, before rapidly changing into a steep climb.
Landmarks/Pubs for lunch/Sites to see?
Sussex Downs, Hastings and Rye, Wind farm at Camber. Lots of cafes and restaurants.

Can this route be done on a road bike? Are you able to stay on roads with this route?

The only truly off road section is between Polegate and Arlington. There is a 2 to 3km section from the A22 west that goes through a woodland. It can be a bit sticky after heavy rain and is best avoided in winter, but I did it on a touring bike ( a racer in all but lightness) and it is pretty firm the rest of the time. This bit can be avoided by heading around to Hailsham on Arlington lane (from Lewes) and heading out onto Pevensey via station road to Downash and Rickney.
