Ironing Fairies and a Willing, Able and Discreet Handyman - is what we all need!
As advertised at the Compton Cafe
The day started off wet and misty but we still met as arranged at the Goodwood Hotel - Angela, Caroline, Sandra, Jane and Mercy. Instead of doing the epic ride I had designed we made our way towards Compton, starting off up Sculpture Park Hill - we are getting so fit now someone said.... hill, what hill?'
From here we cycled past the racecourse, down Kennel Hill and turned right to Lavant. From here we made our way to Chilgrove, cycling the back lanes and coming out at The Fish House. Then up Chilgrove hill, but instead of turning left at the brow of the hill as we usually do we carried straight on and turned left about half a mile dwn the road. On up the two hills and made our way to Compton. Unfortunately, Jane had a puncture and decided to head home. The rest of us stopped for a cuppa at one of our favourite cafes.
It was so lovely and sunny by now, we even had blues skies so we sat outside. From here we made our way back to Goodwood via Stoughton. Angela and Sandra turned off and went back to Chichester. I reached home at 2.30pm
Mileage: 42 long and bumpy miles
Great ride - thanks to the girls who came out today.
Next Sunday, March 11 - a Hill session at 9.30am followed by a pub lunch. Let me know if you plan to join us.
