Nice!

Cool to see how the scenery changes with each gate...

I wish you more days like this next summer, or start riding during winter :) Post pics.

Gates

Very unique post, beautiful Ellsworth. However I enjoy photographing doors personally, could you do a 'Tour of Doors' please. I'm sure there are many rustic doors in the U.K.

No pubs on that route? :confused:

Cool post. ...something symbolic about passing through a gate - or a whole bunch of them for that matter.

Thee could have been three pub stops - one after 8 miles at cuckmere havan, another at around 20 miles at Jevington and a final pup stop at Alfirston at around 30 miles, but I was riding solo so stuck with my camalbak
