Seven members took part in the touring ride to Muddles Green today (Tuesday), a round trip of 37 miles at our usual average speed (whilst cycling) of 12.5 mph. The spring weather was perfect, dry and sunny with the temperature reaching 18ᵒC and just a slight breeze.

Spring is a great time of year to cycle along the country lanes of Sussex with the hedgerows bursting into life and the grass verges being full of wild flowers including primroses, bluebells and celandines. Couple this with today’s excellent weather and you could say that this is cycling paradise!

As usual our ride included a refreshment stop which today was at one of our favourite cafes, the Chiddingly Village Shop and Café at Farley Farm. We’ve been frequent visitors of this café since it opened in 2012 and have never been disappointed. It’s run by volunteers who are always cheerful, it’s cyclist friendly, the service is good and they make a nice cup of coffee!

This was a perfect springtime ride. Let’s hope for more fine spring days.

Happy cycling,

Clive
