Cycle from London (Hackney) to Cuckfield (near Haywards Heath) with Anna. Followed the London-Brighton route from Clapham to Turner's Hill, deviating to go through Tooting Common and Outwood. Six hills, the one at the very end was the most painful! I did struggle a little bit on my mountain bike. Time includes stops, and a 25 minute break at the half-way point. Moving time was 3h 37.
