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.

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.
