Saturday 12 January: Ride to Runcton

Our first Saturday ride of 2019 and it was a mild (for January) and calm but dull afternoon, with the sky threatening rain but never delivering. Thank goodness for the Cycle Bognor “no rain guarantee” !  (T’s & C’s apply).

Ten met at Bognor Library with 2 (Deb and Michelle) meeting us along the way, so 12 out for the afternoon.

I led Mike, Alan, Julian, Steve, Carol, Maureen, Chris, David & Michelle (S) from Bognor Library through the subway and over Highfield Bridge, then South Bersted and a twisty route through estate roads to North Bersted.  Then a cycle route through the new estate to reach the A259 and the Chichester cycletrack.

We followed the cycletrack to Colworth and then took the loop of lanes to re-emerge back on the cycletrack, as far as Merston where we turned through the village, and along the lane to Runcton. From there it was a very short hop up a busy road to Manor Nurseries and the Palm House Restaurant.

Suitably refreshed we completed a circular ride back to Bognor via the tracks through Butterlees Farm ( with a photo stop)

Then there were more twists and turns in Aldwick down to West Park,  finally finishing on the promenade in the town centre.

The round trip mileage was 13.
