We cycled up to Ditchling Beacon this afternoon. It was a miserable day, but we tried to take advantage of whatever that was available to us (it wasn't raining yet). Plus I didn't cycle for two weeks and the route presented to us some really tough climbs. The rain didn't even begin until when we finally reached the beacon an hour after we left Jenni's place. But lucky for us it was only drizzles. The gusting wind was terrible making the journey even tougher than usual. The Beacon was packed as usual with many people taking their leisurely Sunday walks/bike ride. We ended the ride with the need to scrub our bikes down from all the filth (cow poo and mud).
