There were 17 at Bognor Library including 2 newcomers for this afternoons Ride to Pagham led by Steve and Carol. Despite threatening clouds the Cycle Bognor No Rain Guarantee held up (terms and conditions apply)
Steve led the ride out over the Coach Park and over Highfield Road bridge under the under pass A29 past Tescos onto Rowan Way and along the cyclepath. Because of the numbers out we had split into 2 groups to make it easier for motorists to overtake. Steve led Group 1 and Mike led Group 2 with Carol as back marker on Group 2. As usual Steve and Carol kept in touch with their radios
Then it was left into North Bersted St and on to Chalcroft Lane into Hewarts Lane. Then Rose Green Rd and left into Hook Lane Close for a picture stop with both groups briefly joining up on this dead end lane save for bikes.
After joining Pagham Rd we turned left into Church Way and then right onto the quiet Harbour View Road down to Pagham and our destination of Pagham Beach Cafe. We were able to sit outside on the terrace with some having ice creams and some hot drinks and cakes.
Carol took over as leader on the way back with assistance from Edwin to find the new route into the Aldwick Bay Estate using a footpath from Greenways a close off Cardinals Drive. Then it was back via the Sea Front
Mileage for the afternoon was about 12
