Twenty cycle rides, between 4 and 28 kilometres in length, explore the quiet lanes and off-road trails of Sussex – 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 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.
A qualified teacher and mother of three, Deirdre Huston is an enthusiastic cyclist and photographer. Working on this guidebook has provided her with the perfect excuse to further explore rural Sussex whilst doing those very things. She spends much of her time writing fiction and poetry and is often inspired by the creativity, enthusiasm and ideas of the children and young people at her Young Writers' Workshops.
Marina Bullivant grew up in Buckinghamshire and Berkshire before moving to Sussex with her husband and two children. A keen cyclist, she cycles for pleasure and fitness and is constantly on the lookout for new quiet lanes and routes to explore with her friends and family.

East Grinstead Tourist Initiative
'This excellent guide features 20 cycle routes in Sussex. I decided to get in the saddle and do a test run of the 'Out in the Sticks' cycle route. Apart from two short, hard climbs it was an absolute pleasure. This book allows you to explore one of the most beautiful counties in Britain, so take my advice: on your bike!'
