Whilst ZA prepared the brek, AM cycled to Rustington, and the rest of the peloton took an off-road route. Up Church Hill, on Monarch’s Way and through APE south to Angmering, then through Ham Manor estate and to the vicarage for an excellent brek.
After the brek all cycled back to Findon on road.
Saturday 25th November 08.00am ride
RT, SR, RK.
Shoreham loop. Cissbury, over to Steyning Road and straight on to Coombe Far, North along the road to join the Downslink and then south to the Shoreham footbridge to the airport. Just coming out of the airport estate SR lagged behind, leading RT to think that he might have achieved his objective of flattening SR’s battery. However it turned out to be due to a blasteet, which was repaired with a bit of difficulty due to not being able to turn the bike upside down. Onto the sea front for return to Findon via Worthing, West Worthing and the Gallops as usual followed by a brek at Julia’s.
Total 19.6 miles 983 ft climbed (S).
