Dorset to Dover - Day Two - Route Map

This should be a far more interesting day than day one, in both good and bad ways...

On the plus side, it looks like a lovely route down the coast, including Beachy Head and the Seven Sisters, the De La Warr Pavilion at Bexhill, Hastings, Rye (hoping to have lunch at the Mermaid pub, which is apparently very nice), Romney Marshes and then through Folkestone to take the checkered flag at Dover.

The down side is that there are some proper hills today - at Eastbourne, at Beachy Head (hence the popularity with suicides) and after Folkestone. But to put it in perspective, the three hills add up to about 1,300 feet, which is less than Shap Fell, which Gary and I cycled last year, and a third of Mont Ventoux...

As long as the weather is favourable, it should be a lovely day. Famous last words...
