As an alternative route to Sussex Uni or the Amex Stadium, this route takes advantage of an off road cycle route installed by the South Downs National Park.
Starting from Fiveways, an on road cycle route links to the new off road route with lovely view over the Downs. After an awkward crossing at Old Boat Corner towards Ditchling Beacon Road (dismount if preferred) look for a turn into Stanmer Park car park from where it is possible to take a private estate tarmac road down into Stamner Village and then onwards down the valley to the Universities.
Route is largely unlit, suitable for all geared bikes!
This route has now been extended to run from Falmer Village- for Universities and the football stadium up to Sunblest Car park before crossing the Falmer Road and running on lovely, smooth, traffic free tarmac all the way to the top of Wilson Avenue. From here it is easy to travel into Brighton City Centre by 30 or 20 mph limited roads, or by greenway (can be muddy) past the racecourse and down into Kemptown.
Note the Falmer to Woodingdean section is quite isolated and thus unsuitable for travelling in the dark without a powerful bike light.
Quiet country lane linking Ouse Valley to coastal cycle route.
This should soon be connected all the way into Lewes as part of the Egrets way route being built by the National Park.
Route is mainly good tarmac with a short, rather rutted section south of Telscombe village. suitable for all bikes, narrow tyres may need a push for about 200m at this point.
This excellent new off road path runs parallel to the fast and busy Falmer road.
Links to Local Route 90 to Lewes/ Brighton.
South end links via Juggs Road to South Downs Way- good chalk track for hybrids and MTBs
Good traffic free route to Amex Stadium.
