Twice towards the back end of last year myself and 20three co-collaborator Graham cycled parts of the South Downs link. The first attempt we abandoned at Christs Hospital after a ham, eggs, chips & beer lunch. The second attempt we were a bit more determined, we caught an early train from Brighton to Guilford and cycled back to Brighton (via Shoreham by Sea), this time not stopping for a pub lunch, the ride taking us about three hours or so.
The South Downs link runs along part of the Steyning railway line, discontinued since the 1960’s. As the route is along a disused railway line there a several ‘ghost’ railway stations along the route, pictures below.
There is a PDF guide for the links, detailed, with maps, download it here.
