Wednesday’s grade 3 and 4 ride

The planned ride this Wednesday for the grades 3 and 4 is advertised as being a mainly off road ride down the Downs Link to Shoreham.  This was suggested by a club member as providing some further variation in our programme, and with the weather set fair and looking as though it will remain hot, the section along the old railway line will no doubt provide some welcome shade.  However, I recognise that such a ride will not appeal to all, and therefore Peter Hackman has kindly arranged an alternative on road ride for the grade 4’s with coffee at Stansted House (PO9 6DX) , and thereafter via the Itchenor Ferry to Dell Quay; should be glorious but take sun screen.  Please see his e-mail for further details, or contact me direct.
It may be that no-one will favour the Downs Link ride, so if you plan to attend that one, please e-mail me ( to let me know; if I get just one positive response then I will be there.

  1. Hi All,
    The scheduled ride for Wednesday 20th July is offroad along the Downslink. As an alternative for those Group 4s who would prefer an on road ride I will be leading a ride to Elsted House Garden Centre (coffee) followed by a ferry trip to Itchenor (tide permitting) and thence to Dell Quay for lunch. Afterwards I intend to follow the old railway track out of Chichester (Centurian Way) and thence to Midhurst for tea.

    There are train(s) from Woking, Guildford and Haslemere arriving at Rowlands Castle at 10:21 It is about 3 miles from there to Stansted Garden Centre. I don’t intend to meet the train!

    PUTTENHAM MEETING POINT We will meet in the car park of the pub at the bottom of Puttenham Hill
    It is on th emain road between the Puttenham turn off and the next junction to Shackleford. It is a Harvester Inn called the Jolly Farmer
    i.e. not the pub in the village

    Best wishes,
