The BMWs cycle the undercliff to Ovingdean

The BMWs -- The Brighton Multicultural Women's Cycling Club  formed in 2021 as a Covid safe activity for TDC's MESH project, in partnership with Brighton Bike Hub. Recently they went on a group ride to celebrate The Great Big Green Week, the UK’s biggest ever celebration of community action to tackle climate change and protect nature.

TDC's Cicely Lloyd reports:

On Thursday 29th September, with an invitation from the Ovingdean Community for tea, cheese scones and cake in the church, we met at 11am in Brighton Marina.
We cycled along the undercliff to Rottingdean, then on top of the cliff and inland to Saint Wulfran’s Church, which is 900 years old, in Ovingdean.

We were 13 women from Egypt, Iraq, Iran, Japan, Ukraine and the UK. For some of us, it was our first cycle on roads and our first time on the undercliff.

The sun shone, friendships strengthened, bicycles flew and spirits lifted.
