Other Recommended Routes
Downs Link Southwater to Bramber castle, park at Southwater Country park
and join the Down Link, an easy ride along the old railway down to
near Bramber then a short ride along farm tracks and roads to the castle.
Seven Sisters Country park & Friston forest. An easy ride to the coast
at Cuckmere and lost of trails, some challenging in the forest.
Due to my limited hip movement I almost gave up finding a way of being
able to ride a bike, my left foot cannot rise up any higher than about
2cm below the bottom bracket. However
after talking to several bike shops, I came across Future
Cycles in Forest Row, who in turn put me in touch with Unicam Mobility
a small firm in Somerset. The proprietor Paul Butterworth (01460 67926)
has developed a number of adaptations for cranks, in order to cater for
different disabilities. In my case a hinged crank was the answer. I have
amazed both myself and my friends by my new found competence!
