Shoreham route. Up Cissbury and over to The Coombes and to Shoreham centre via the footbridge to see the FD’s Christmas market stall. Eventually found him in a large tent by the water filling the tent with chocolate scent from his new mill and enthusing over the effects.
Over the new motorway and along the seafront to return to Findon via W.Worthing, Salvington and the Gallops.
Total 19 miles
Saturday 12th December Trek ‘n Lunch at the Avery’s
Decided to aim for a bacon sarnie at Arundel, so usual route up to the SDW to Kithurst Hill and down to Burpham and along the road to Arundel. Bacon sarnies in the Arundel tea rooms proved to be a good choice and the service there has greatly improved.
Then back to Warningcamp and into Angmering Park Estate, Wepham Woods, the Dover and round Hammerpot Woods to go under the A27 at Hammerpot and through the maze to the Avery establishment.
After a great feast at which we were joined by Messrs Topley and Mead and spouses, the return journey was mostly on road – down to and along the A259, Durrington past that superstore, Salvington and then the gallops.
Total 29 miles
Saturday 26th December 08.00am ride.
It being Boxing Day none were out for a ride, though Mr Roche had been keen on the prospect prior to Christmas Day.
