Tony Hooker's ride to Brighton on Saturday 18th July

18 riders left Nonsuch Park on a fine morning, on route to Newdigate, when we arrived Liz decided to take three riders for a tea stop and to take a slower ride to Brighton.

14 riders continued on to Horsham where we stopped for a snack. We encountered several hitches on our way to Shoreham, Firstly I took a wrong turning, then Brian got a puncture and then finally we lost two riders after Henfield, we waited for twenty minutes but were unable to find them!

We arrived in Shoreham and took the coastal route until we met John Gould and his family at Hove. After this we all went our separate ways, Six riders went with John to Brighton Marina to celebrate his coming Birthday, Brian cycled back to Horsham, the others took the train and Eddie and I cycled on to Lewes where we stayed at the YHA.

The next day we cycled back home , the weather was nice and sunny and we arrived home about 3.00pm. My thanks to Neil, Angie and Toni for back marking
