Brighton to London

by Maggers   April 15, 2014  

Apologies if there's already a thread on this but I couldn't find one.

Does anyone have a half fecent route back from Brighton to the Dorking area? Having slogged alongside the dual carraige way on the way back from the BHF L2B last year I'm after a better route. Looks like there are 2 national cycle routes (222 & a combination of 20/21) but I've had bad experience in the past of them sending you doing muddy tracks which really aren't any good on a road bike.

You could go along the front towards Shoreham and then pick up the A283 north through Steyning then to Henfield, A281 to Horsham and then round Warnham onto A29 through Ockley and then last bit on A24 from Beare Green to North Holmwood. Avoids most of the major roads.

Edit. Just done a quick check on Google Maps and it's about 42 miles.

Did Nightrider 2013 and 2014 for Parkinson's UK. Might just have one last go in 2015.

Normally head out towards Devil's Dyke, over the top and then meet up with the A281 for a short stretch. Where the 281 turns West, turn North instead until you meet the B2116. Left and after a right then a left turn tight onto Wineham Lane. Carry on, straight over the A272 up to Warninglid. Straight through and left onto Hampshire Hill. Straight over the crossroads onto Hammerpond Road. After the dip by the reservoir turn right onto Grouse Road. Left onto Blackhouse Rd to Colgate then a left and a right that drops you down to the A264. Straight across the roundabout and you're at Faygate. Straight on through to Rusper and you're practically back. Left at Newdigate onto Henfold Lane and then maybe take a left up Inholms Lane through North Holmwood.

The Shoreham route is flatter though.

Have a dig around on Strava or RidewithGPS and see what other folk have been up to and then adapt the route to suit. For example...
