FGCC rides in June 2020.
Saturday 6th June 08.00am ride
A pelot one set off this morning on the road. Mountain bike laid up with worsening creak we now think is coming from the rear sprockets.
Report from PT:
TAMITS: Flying Brit demonstrating his viking navigational skills.
Half-link award for the Flying brit for managing to ride from Ashhurst to Lyndhurst on half a link and not actually resorting to his usual preference and going for a full break.
Saturday 13th June 08.00am ride
1.TK, RK, PT, CB, ZA
We proceeded past Tolmare, gun club to the barn where we turned east along SDW, defending fast to the foot of Chanctonburys steepest assent, where we enjoyed a minor interlude to allow some expert fettling of gears by the TM, then onward once more to all conquer this tricky climb.
Pausing at the top of the climb to recover form and once more to enjoy the stunning views at Chanctonbury , we took the extended route to Langmead .. the fine weather had drawn out the crowds as the SDW felt more like the North Downs with multiple groups of walkers and riders ..
back to West Worthing up Stone Lane across to Offington and the A27 R/about. Up the valley, home. Cateye (now reinvigorated by new batteries) says 37.5 miles. Beautiful day
3. MAWhat a collection of adventures members of the FGCC have been having over the last few days!
My ride yesterday was not as eventful except perhaps that I started at 06:51 and was back home by 08:30 in time for a delivery of fencing materials from Wickes.
I took a mostly road route to to Arundel via Rustington and Climping Beach then back via Crossbush and the track through APE from Blakehurst Lane.
Just over 18 miles with a mighty 280ft ascent according to my app. Plotaroute total 17.8 miles & 719 ft
Saturday 20th June 08.00am ride.
- The main peloton
CB, JB, JR, KBS, PT, RT, TK
A bumper peleton was on hand at Pond Green to offer a welcome to John and Jake after some Saturdays of absence. Jake has reverted to his original e-bike, and its geometry is such that no painkillers are needed, so it’s time to sell your shares in Nurofen
2. AM’s ride.
Stumpy is cracked and beyond repair. Road Bike.
Saturday 27th June 08.00am ride – the TM’s repair ride
CB’s second attempt to dodge the ride and walk home was thus foiled, as he was compelled to ride like the rest of us. The repair held for the homeward leg over cissbury and back to Nepcroft.
JR later added:
