I went out cycling on Saturday as part of my 30 Days of Biking for April. It wasn’t a particularly long cycle ride but I really enjoyed the trip. The route was on country lanes north of Horsham and I’ve done it a few times before. However, I want to highlight the route because it’s an easy way to get away from it all on some quiet country lanes between Horsham, Rusper and towards Ifield (near Crawley).
Anyway, here’s the route:
This is a 17 mile ride for me but the distance will depend where in Horsham you start from. The route is entirely on-road so it’s suitable for any type of bicycle. I did it on my mountain bike so I averaged 12 mph on the route (approx. 1 hour 40 mins to complete the trip).
Despite living in the busy south east of England, it’s still very easy to find quiet cycling routes and this is one of them. Give it a try next time you need somewhere to cycle near Horsham!
