It was another glorious morning, the sun was shining all the time we were out.
This was a practice run for our Family Charity Ride on Saturday, June 25.
We met at the parking area close to the start of the Centurion Way and welcomed new Belle - Joanna. From here we made our way towards Bosham, at the ferry point we decided to head straight on to our cafe in Bosham for breakfast/tea and cakes. The tide was just starting to come in, so we parked our bikes up on the high ledge just outside the cafe.
|This little chap was having great fun in the water!|
From the cafe we cycled back towards the ferry, however the sea had come in quite a way and a few of us had to cycle through the water.....
The worst that happened was we got wet feet and seaweed in and around our wheels....
We made our way to the ferry meeting point, waved and waited for the boat, which didn't take too long to arrive.
The ferry was able to take all 6 bikes, which was good and they were even loaded onto the boat for us - perfect!
The crossing probably took 5 mins to arrive in Itchenor....
The cost was £2.50 including our bikes.
From here we went to the Ship Inn to speak to the landlord, just to brief him about the evening on June 25 as there could be quite a few people wanting supper that night. He was great, they all seemed very friendly at the pub.
The pub seems also to be dog and cycle friendly....
After a cool drink we set for home along the Salterns Way, passing through the Chichester Yacht Club along the way.
This was a lovely ride and everyone should enjoy it on June 25.
We arrived back at the start at 1.50pm. Thanks to everyone who came out today....Elise, Angela, Ellie, Karen, Leyla, Joanna and for a short time...Jill.
Hope to see you again. Our next ride is Easter Saturday and we're meeting at 9.30am rather than 10am. Please email me if you're interested in joining us.
