14 riders for today’s cycle led by Steve and Carol to Arundel. Weather was fine and dry and we split into 2 groups to make it easier for cars to pass us. Steve led the first group and our new trainee leader Michelle, who did a great job led the second group.
We made our way through the coach park and to the underpass to Arun Leisure Centre into the Roundel Estate and out to the new relief road where we picked up the new Littlehampton and Bognor cycle path. Turned left towards Yapton where we stopped for a group photo at the playing field.
After a brief stop we continued on to Church Lane and into Ford Lane over Ford level crossing and a short ride on Ford busy road. Turned Left into Tortington Lane where we had a lovely quiet cycle with a slight climb before turning into Priory Lane then immediately turned left to take opening to get us into Dallaway Road. A nice downhill run right down to the main A27 roundabout. We then made our way across river the Arun then back under A27 into Fitzalan Road. At the end of the road, T Junction turning Left over river to the roundabout turning right 200 meters on the right Arundel Putting Green Cafe.
The Cafe had lovely friendly staff and reasonably priced cakes and refreshments. Apple pie was huge!
Carol led the first group back and Alan led the second group heading back to Ford lane and at the end of the road turning right onto the new cycle path.
