Autumn Weekend Ride

Autumn Weekend Ride

By Beds for Cyclists

When the clocks change, the temperature drops and leaves start falling from the trees, many people stow their bikes in the shed for winter but I think this is one of the best times of year to ride. A late November weekend, my girlfriend and I wanted to get out of the city and soak up the autumnal splendour from the saddle.

5 (more) things you must do in Brighton this autumn/winter

Not just a destination for the summer, Brighton is choc-a-bloc full of awesome things to see and do all year round, especially in the autumn and winter months.

Whether you’re staying for a while or just visiting for the weekend, here is your essential guide to Brighton - five things you must do before the year is out:

A Festive Swim

A Festive Swim

It's become a bit of a tradition no matter what the weather to strip off that Christmas jumper and plunge into the icy water on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day. Well, there's sure to be turkey and Christmas pud that needs to be worked off!

Brighton Beach Christmas Day Swim

One of the longest running festive swims out there. Take a dip with Brighton Swimming Club in the chilly sea - they’ve been doing it every year since the 19th century.
