8am on a chilly Sunday morning is not everyone’s ideal start to the day, but a few hardy souls took on the challenge. Despite the low temperatures we were treated to bright sunshine the entire route.

Ride to Littlehampton

Cyclists outside the ‘tea rooms’ where we had lunch. A good choice.

Last Thursday, 26 May, four of us took part in the fifth annual ride to Littlehampton and back, a total distance of 70 miles. Originally, it was never planned to be an annual event but somehow it’s worked out that way. It’s . . . → Read More: Ride to Littlehampton
