Avril & Keith from Littlehampton were the only riders to set off from the
Cross for this ride.
After the previous night's torrential rain & strong gales, conditions were
cold, clear and blustery. The ride stopped at Mariner's Coffee Shop in
Bosham for elevenses where I met up with Keith and Avril.
After refeshments and attempting a newspaper crossword that Keith had
brought along we headed pretty much straight for Emsworth along the A259,
save for a brief diversion through Prinsted. Despite the worst of the
previous night's weather having calmed, a combination of frequent floods and
debris on the road, and blustery side and headwinds, made the ride
interesting to say the least!
Soon after we arrived at The Greenhouse Cafe in Emsworth Lynn and Arthur
arrived, having travelled over there by car. After a leisurely lunch there
we made our own ways home.
My mileage for the day was 49km.
