Sunday 19 September Ride to Hayling Island

We met for the Ride today at 10.00 at Chichester Cross. I was the leader and I was joined by Harvey, Jason and Maureen. Weather was overcast with very light rain mid morning not enough to require a coat and mainly over lunch

We headed out along West Street and then Clay Lane and the South Coast Cycle Route to stop for elevenses at The Woodmancote and partook of their giant cakes.

Then it was on via Westbourne and Southleigh Road and before the level crossing took First Avenue to back roads to take the footbridge over the northbound railway. Then it was a railway crossing over the combined northbound and Eastbound railway which resulted in waiting for 3 trains each from a different rail  operator.

On the other side we joined the northern end of the Hayling Billy Trail and then on to Langstone  and over the Bridge to Hayling Island. It was then a short way to  Northney Marina and the Salt Shack Café for lunch.

Harvey led the group back via Emsworth with a mileage for the day from Chichester of about 30
