Pelot one set off from School hill southwards to the Becket Lights. Turned west along the A259 to LA. At Morrisons R/about took the cycle path through the industrial estate and under the railway line to emerge blinking in the sunlight on the edge of Tesco’s car park. Back onto the A259 cycle path to Bognor, around the bypass to the the Pink pub at Bersted. South to Aldwick before turning East with the S/westerly at my back through Aldwick to West Bognor and The seafront. Quite crowded with funseekers and portly holidaymakers, munching on ice-cream, chips and sundry pastries, but negotiable at a reasonable speed.

A damp drizzly day and only foundation members plus the intrepid so-titled Crocodile Kruger were present. After recent westerly rides an easterly ride was chosen. Up to and around the east side of Cissbury and down past the golf course to Third Avenue and across into Broadwater, then led by JR, his homing instincts took us past St Andrews School for the third time in almost as many weeks and over the footbridge, leading to questions as to whether the footbridge had been the location of his first kiss with one of the local young maidens or his first cigarette (both denied).
Onto the seafront and all the way to Shoreham and up to Shoreham Airport for a splendid breakfast, of such a standard that all agreed that it would receive a high rating on Budd-advisor.
Replete and relaxed after a good session of vox testiculorum the return journey was a slow wet ride via Lancing College and Cissbury.
Total: 17.35 miles and 1,169ft (strava). Plotaroute 17.1 miles and 1,207 ft.
