Our first evening ride for 2018 and what a good turnout 15 at the start probably helped by the lovely weather it was nice to see a lot of familiar faces and new.
I (Steve Led the riders out)We set off at 1935 hrs and made our way towards Butlins where we turned left and made our way down Limmer lane through King Georges Park and along Middleton Road out to Comet Corner, we crossed the busy A259 and made our way to Yapton.
We passed Yapton village hall and turned right into Church Lane at the end we turned right and made our way across Yapton Railway crossing where we turned left into lake lane, this turned out not to be a very good move as we were continually dodging the many deep and dangerous pot holes and we also came across our first friendly steering wheel attendant or not so friendly according my fellow riders Russ and Graham still he must have been a very busy man to get that annoyed for being held up all of 60 seconds.
At the end of Lake Lane we turned left and under Railway bridge and arrived at the Murrell arms, there were 3 other cyclist who met us there so 18 out in total we did split into 2 groups there was Michelle and her little group who sat in the warm then Carol and her hardy little group who were determined to sit outside in the cold but we all enjoyed a good chat and catch up with old friends.
Carol called time and took the reins and took us back towards Bognor using the Hoe lane cycle track which is not in a very good condition after recent ground works, we arrived back to Bognor safely and without incident overall a lovely first evening ride with a good group of people
