London to Bognor Regis 27th April 2018
Ride leader: Martin
Leaving South Bank at midnight, we'll set off with the call of the sea in our ears. After a traditional stop on Clapham Common (home to an omnibus and the odd MP), it's then a steady pace through the suburbs to break free from the M25 cordon and drop downhill to Dorking. We're then on rolling country lanes, listening to the night chorus to our halfway stop.
Once nourished on an ample supply of food, teas and coffees, we'll be off into the dawn towards Amberley, to then encounter the Gurkha bridge. (We always look for Joanna Lumley but she's not turned up yet.)
We'll stop in Arundel to admire the castle, before then heading off for our breakfast overlooking the sea.
Bognor station is less than a mile away, with frequent trains. (It's also a nice bike ride home.)
Total distance is 72 miles, and no long dragging hills.
