The ride to Yapton started at 10.00 at Chichester Cross led by Arthur and joined by myself (Edwin) and Maureen. We were joined by Lynn at elevenses and joined by Harvey and John Maxim at lunch.
Weather was cool especially to start with about 15c but mainly dry and sunny save for a couple of very short light showers on the way back.
We were headed towards Tangmere for elevenses so headed in the opposite direction for a better route. We went via West Street and then past a Road closed sign to the road leading to the Centurion Way. As we went up the Centurion Way we passed more and more runners coming towards us taking part in the Chichester Half Marathon .
At Lavant we rejoined the road heading to East Lavant and then the Goodwood Straight before heading south to Westhampnett before taking the cyclepath down the old road to cross the A27 on the flyover and on to Tangmere to take elevenses at the Cockpit Café, Tangmere Museum.
Then it was on the cyclepath across Tangmere Airfield and on backroads to pick up the Oving Straight with a tailwind for a change. Then on via Eastergate, Barnham and Yapton. Then on via the Yapton Road to the east side of Yapton to the Ceasefire Café. This is linked with a firing range and a first for the Club. The food was good and very good value
For the return we went our different ways. My mileage from home was 30.
