We're Moving!

Our new website is now live! Join your fellow Nomads at our new address www.sussexnomads.com

You can order both Kalas and Gear Club kit in the sparkling new online shop, and we're loading up details of club runs and other events.

All new content is now being placed only in the new site, and in October the Ning site will be switched off forever.

If there are pictures, video links, blogs or discussions in the old site that you'd like to see preserved, please feel free to copy them while Ning is still available and post them in the new site.

If you have other suggestions, including requests for more complicated migration of data from Ning to the new site, you can send a message to the webmaster at the new site.

When you visit the new site, don't forget to register for the new discussion forum so that you can take part in the usual high quality Nomads banter.

Kalas Kit

We are pleased to be able to announce that we have chosen Kalas to be an additional supplier for Sussex Nomads Club Kit, after requests to have a more modern race fit oriented kit supplier. Initially Kalas kit will be orders only, but we will still continue to stock and order Gear Club kit as the standard kit, which can still be ordered on the club website.

You can see the Kalas custom catalogue here - we are able to offer most of the items in all four of our current kit colour ways, though minimum order levels for some accessories will restrict us from ordering them in small numbers. 


You can view and try for size in Brighton contact Adrian.


Gear Club kit is still available to order and from stock for those who prefer it, next GC order planned for August 5th 2017 contact Adrian on 07941890575.

Club Runs and Come & Try It Rides

As traditional as Sunday lunch! Click here for a full club run listing, and get every Sunday off to a good start.

If you're new to group riding, our Come & Try It rides, normally on the first Sunday of the month, are for you - a gentle 12-15 mile (20-25 km) ride to join the rest of the club for coffee and cake.

NEW RIDERS click here for general information about club runs and to see the start point on a map, or click here for information about ride organistation and etiquette.

We always need RIDE LEADERS and LANTERNES ROUGES, especially for the slower-paced groups. If you can help by downloading the course and looking out for riders less experienced than you, please make yourself known at the start.

RIDE LEADERS click here for ways in which you can make your rides run more smoothly and be more satisfying for everyone.
