Thursday 10th April - Steep to West Wittering
Turns out our Owens Cycles guy turns out at 6.00am to make sure the complete wheel re-built doesn’t delay our plans! So, camp dismissed and back on the road not much later than normal.
Late breakfast donut in Petersfield, courtesy of Greggs (break a leg Pat ;-)).
Hit the Downs and hit by the Downs just south of Petersfield by Buster Hill; the longest and steepest on the route so far. Wonderful reward from the crest though and what felt like miles of free-wheeling to Rowlands Castle.
Returned to some familiar territory from previous rides as we headed to Budge’s for a few nights. Snuck our lunch out at the Bosham Inn before reaching West Wittering around 3.30pm - pants off and into the wash!
First milestone completed.
