Last weekend, nine Seaford College staff members, students and parents took part in the ‘Seaford to Seaford’ bike ride, setting off at 8am from Mansion and riding over the South Downs to the town of Seaford to raise money for Marie Curie.
“The weather was amazing and we had glorious sunshine and a light wind behind us the whole way,” said houseparent Matthew Pitteway, who organised the event. “Barring a couple of punctures, the day was incident free.
“The route is almost exactly 50 miles and goes through some of the most stunning scenery in the area including Chanctonbury Ring, Devil’s Dyke and Ditchling Beacon. With a lovely stop for lunch and a few scheduled stops along the way to take on water, we eventually reached Corsica Hall in Seaford at 5.45pm.
“It was a great day and we look forward to the next fundraising event, which will be a 100k lap of the Isle of Wight on 19 June.”
