  • The first leg of the South Downs way starts as it means to carry on: glorious, rolling countryside, excellent views, and for the most part pretty good going. Don't be put off by the 'difficult' rating of this ride, as it's mostly wide tracks, so it's pretty technically straightforward, but at 29 miles
