Saturday 9th September. Tangmere Airfield Cafe Ride

Due to illness Philippa could not lead this ride today so Steve & Carol took up the reins. 7 Riders met at Chichester Library, Harvey, Lucy, David, Carol, Steve, Carol 2 , Jill.

We made our way out of Chichester via North walls, Priory park into Melbourne Rd turn left into Spitalfield Rd heading into hospital and turning right into Swanfield drive left into Bradshaw Rd right into Barnfield drive, then into Westhampnett Road, we made our way past the Rolls Royce Factory onto the cycle path that lead us to the roundabout above A27.  As we arrived a lot earlier than we expected we all agreed to a diversion that took us out to Halnaker we then made our way through Boxgrove and over A27 Footbridge through village of Tangmere to our destination, Tangmere Air Museum Cafe, not a very good selection of cakes to pick from today but the hot tea was most welcome.  Photos were taken by a kind passer-by in front of a Harrier jump jet.

We all then made our way across the old airfield path  where Harvey turned left towards Barnham and we headed for Drayton where David & Lucy turned left over Railway crossing & we turned right for Chichester this is when the rain started and stayed with and Carol I all the way back home to Felpham. Carol and Steve ended the ride at Chichester Railway Station Carol 2 & Jill then caught the train back to Portsmouth.
