For any cyclists coming to Brighton for this year’s UKOUG Techfest 2019 running from 1/12/2019–4/12/2019, I’m organizing a Techfest 2019 Cycle Along the Seafront for the Sunday morning in the style of the Openworld “Bike over the Bridge” events … but along Brighton seafront to Rottingdean with a stop at the pub half-way for that essential “athletes lunch”.

The route is just over 15km in-total and you can view it on Strava at

Entry is free and you can hire bikes at several places along the seafront ( ) or at one of Brighton’s many bike hire shops ( ).

Our route will start opposite the Grand Hotel, Brighton at 11am, then take us past Brighton Pier, Brighton Marina then along the Undercliff Walk to Rottingdean where we’ll stop for a drink and a quick lunch, then cycle back over the clifftop to be back at the Grand by 1.30pm in-time for registration before Super Sunday starts. If you need to hire a bike from Brighton Bike Share then either make sure you register on their website first, or I’ll be at the Grand for 10.30 if you need help.

It’s a fairly gentle ride as long as the weather is good, so if you’re interested in taking part leave your details on the meetup event page and leave a message on the meetup site if you have any questions.
