Lorna

MTB loop taking in South Downs Way in the East

I am more than a little bit in love with cycling and the South Downs. I am always on my mountain bike or cyclocross bike on the hills and when I am not cycling I am thinking about it. I feel very lucky to live where I do and have the West Sussex countryside on my doorstep, and I make the most of it with all the cycling and cake eating I can manage!
