It was a beautiful clear sunny day today with light winds and temperatures up to 20C . Graham was the leader with the Report prepared by Edwin with picture contributions also from Michael and Graham. There was a really good turnout of 14 for the Ride.
Graham led us out under the underpass and then via the Cricket Club and Leisure Centre. Then it was via estate roads and Paths to the Barnham Cyclepath and a brief stop at Barnham Church to regroup.
Then up via Barnham and the Cyclepath to Walberton before cutting across to Binsted and a narrow lane. A good surface was interrupted by a short stretch lacking tarmac. We regrouped by the Binsted Madonna Pond which is said to be haunted by a coach & horses which had ridden into the pond but never came out.
After a climb we headed on initially away from Arundel before turning off and taking a path into an estate north of Arundel. Then it was a fast descent into town between trees having a hint of Autumn.
After taking back roads into the town centre we got to the Putting Green Cafe and were soon tucking into refreshments.
As we prepared to leave Michael very patiently got us arranged into a group of all 14 of us with a kind lady from another table persuaded to take the picture.
It was a more direct route back via the Ford Road and then Ford Lane towards Yapton.
We continued via Yapton and at the A259 the cyclepath to Flansham. Then after the playing fields on to Limmer Lane and on to the Prom cycle route and making our ways back. My mileage was 29. Mileage for the route from and back to Bognor was about 21.
