10 Brave cyclist turned up for today’s ride from Bognor library, with Steve leading out and Carol leading back. There was rain in the air when we got to the meet point which got steadily worse on our way to Willows Tea Rooms but that didn’t manage to dampen our spirits.
We made our way out to Brooks lane and a nice muddy little track so as to get Grahams lovely new clean Dawes Discovery nice and dirty. (payback time for all those fellow cyclist he as dragged through the mud on previous rides)
Then it was onto Arun Leisure Centre then out to Downview Rd into Outerwyke Rd then Westmorland Rd and onto the Littlehampton Cycle path stopping and checking signage at the rest point, some of us took this opportunity to put more waterproof clothing on before we carried on to the Oyster catcher pub where on advice from fellow riders we turned left towards Ford airfield then making our way through Yapton to Windmill Shopping Village and Willows Tea Rooms, we all got out of our wet clothing then ordered our tea coffee and cakes.
(I have to say the cream teas were great) and the staff as usual were really good. Time soon past and it was time to leave, the group were taking different routes some turning left to go across Barnham cycle track and some turning right to go through Yapton by road Carol led the main group through Yapton and back to Bognor by road.
Thank you all for joining us on our ride
Carol and Steve
