Storrington outride information

10th February 2024

Its a great days riding – it will be at a steady pace that will benefit riders overall fitness – we are not racing nor in a hurry.

This will be around a 4 hour ride (with breaks) over some beautiful South Downs trails, so please confirm one way or another your intention to join us or not on the day ASAP.

We plan to leave sharp at 10am and aim to reach the lunch spot by 12.30pm and back at arrival carpark for 2.00 – 2.30pm. The ride will be tough with some typical South Downs hills to climb and descents.

Meeting/end point: – aim to arrive early (ideally by 9.40am at the lastest), as the carpark is small and we don’t know how busy it will be this year.

Storrington is north of Worthing, West Sussex. Leave the A24 at the roundabout by Washington and head west on he A283. In Storrington, turn left on to the B2139 (by the garage, signposted to Amberley). After just over a mile, turn left on to the unmade-up road – It will be signed Kithurst Hill Car Park. Follow this singletrack road up to the carpark – approx. 2 miles.

Optional Pick-up points

If required, we can look to cut the ride short for a rider and the best stop for you to meet us will be at Cissbury Ring carpark (approx. time of arrival – 1.00-1.30pm) that is located East of Finden, Worthing; postcode – BN14 0HT and signposted to Cissbury Ring.

NOTE: mobile communication will be essential to know whether or not rider wishes to finish early and that you are their to pick-up! Timings are very approx.


The riders MUST prepare their backpacks for a days ride, as per previous coaching instructions. Bring plenty of fluid (ideally a hydration pack), snacks and of course lunch. This will be a tiring ride, so energy snacks will help with the little and often intake of food that we will advise on the day. Watch the weather as it is exposed up on the Downs, so suntan cream and/or waterproof, as necessary, is essential.

If any parent wishing to join us is welcome, but I do ask that you confirm your intentions. Tim and I are leading the ride and may involve other members joining us for the ride. Contact me on my mobile – 0789 641 2223 if your plans change, delayed etc.

REMEMBER – to check your emails before you set-off, just in case I need to cancel the ride for whatever reason.
