If the weather is right, this is a lovely day out. For an easier ride take the trail from Heathfield and you can go 20 miles all the way to Eastbourne Seafront. For a harder route go in the opposite direction.

As we live in the area this makes for a quiet country walk. Open fields and woodland all around and walk is on a well maintained tarmac path. Used by walkers dog walkers and cyclists. Can be enjoyed by all age groups.

This was the first time we had experienced the 'Cuckoo Trail' and we had a great time. We started at 'Heathfield' (small car parking facility available) and headed down the trail towards Eastbourne. The ride going was pretty easy if I am honest we probably...More
