In a change from recent days it was dry with some sunshine though cool reaching only 12C with a NE wind. With this being the only ride it was disappointing that only 4 were out. Arthur as leader was joined by just Lynn, Graham Annaly and Edwin.
Lynn joined us later after dealing with an over sleeping Guest. Meanwhile Arthur, Graham and Edwin headed out along Westgate and over the Cycle Bridge. Then it was under the underpass to the edge of Fishbourne before cutting across to Appledram Lane South. To avoid the busy main road we took the Salterns Way cycle route to Chichester Yacht Basin and our stop for elevenses at the Boat House Cafe. This was busy as usual plus a group of 8 walkers just got in the door ahead of us.
Lynn caught up with us just as we were about to leave and in time for a photo.
I left early to head home via Houghton and Merston. The rest continued via Birdham to head to lunch at the Boulevard Cafe East Wittering. My mileage including the distance from and back to Pagham was 25. The full distance from and back to Chichester was probably about the same.
