After one of the best nights ‘on the road’, it was great to have the company of Gerry and Brian, as I readied myself for the day ahead. Riding out to the coast from Chichester was a bit of a bugger, which was highly appropriate as my first coast fall was Bognor.
From there it was almost continuous coastal suburbia. Made no less pleasurable by the frequent need for pavement cycling and failures of the signing for The South Coast Cycle Route, sometimes having to be worked out in reverse , and at others trying to be a mind reader of the ether – something I have not mastered yet.
The great advantage, for most of the day was the flatness. This was until I got past Brighton, when things livened up with The Seven Sisters, followed by the South Downs as I rode to Alfriston for my B&B. The most pleasurable moment of the day was coming across a street musician playing Let It Be on his ‘portable cello’ in Shoreham.
Start: Alfriston (8.30 am)
Distance: 36.9 miles

Walsham would not be the same without the village church and the regular sound of the church bells.
