ride by Phil & Verna

A fine gathering of enthusiasts for the Valentine’s Day ride. Leaders Phil and Verna were joined by Dave and Caroline and Russell and Rachel; with Cliff and Pauline, Liz and Mark driving over to Wisborough Green from Kent to swell our numbers. It was a cold start but with everyone ready to go we were soon off and warming up. We were incredibly lucky to have such a fine sunny day. It wasn’t far to Petworth, where we allowed ourselves a morning coffee break in the friendly Tiffins tea room before a longer stretch, including a tour of the Petworth one way system, took us to a very tasty late lunch in the Royal Oak near Midhurst. With some lovely lanes through forest and moorland and views of distant hills we achieved an impressive 45 miles, packing up just as the sun was sinking, owing to a late puncture.
