FGCC rides in September 2022
Saturday 3rd September 08.00am ride
PT further reported as follows:
Saturday 10th September 08.00am ride but Sheep Fair day.
No rides from the village due to the Sheep Fair either involving gentlemen in other duties or limiting parking for those abroad. Hence only one UK ride by Mr Topley and one ride abroad by Mr Budd recorded:
PT: Solo ride on e-bike in the Horsham area with leccy switched off – think of riding a 25kg bike, though maybe all those years back our bikes were almost as heavy. No
Total 19.6 miles and 842 ft.
CB Lunch ride:
Continuing the tradition of “mad dogs and Englishmen…” Mr Budd ventured from home and across the valley to head NNE to end in one of his favourite off-road areas the Abbadia de Fiastre. Noted that he stopped there presumably taking on the Continental theme of “too much tarmac” as presented by the return route home.
Total 16.3miles and 1,682ft.
Saturday 17th September 08.00am ride
TK, RK, TB, RT
Debut ride for RT’s new steed but a shortish ride due to time constraints.
Up Cissbury and straight on to Coombe Farm. St Botolphs and the Downslink for a coffee and cake at the Shoreham footbridge. Return via Lancing Clump with no incidents to report.
Total 14.5 miles and 1,314 ft.
Saturday 24th September 08.00am ride
TB & RT.
Brek at Teddies south as we had not been there for some time. Route up Stable Lane and to SDW and Langmead memorial, noting that there is a new plaque to another Langmead. A first time drop down the concrete road for TB to the Downslink to Shoreham and Teddies. Return via the seafront to Grand Avenue and the usual route via W Worthing and the Gallops.
Total 22.4 miles and 924ft
