A flatish ride with lots of tracks so its not too easy.
Route from Havant to Chichester, via lanes.
Along the canal and through South Mundham down to Sidlesham Quay.

A coffee break at The OldPiggery tea rooms near Norton with indoor facilities.

On to Selsey Bill, Bracklesham Bay via the Medberry cycleways and East Wittering for lunch stop at a cafeteria.

Finally on to West Wittering and returning up the Salterns way to Fishbourne.

Expected back at Havant after 3pm. Approx 55 miles. Average speed 10-12 mph.

Although there are several miles of stony tracks, I encountered hardly any muddy bits after all the recent rain, so all but the narrowest tyres should be ok.

Indoor refreshment facilities now available but we have to stay as separate groups of 6 inside.

About Wednesday rides

Wednesday rides usually start from Havant with stops for elevenses, lunch and sometimes tea. If you're unable to keep up or have a mechanical problem, someone will be available to help you - although we obviously cannot guarantee to solve all problems.

Wednesday rides usually provide a range of options to riders as we'll try to arrange multiple rides with different paces, distance and degree of hilliness.

On Wednesdays it is likely that there will be several riders coming back to the Havant area after an elevenses stop - although they might not include a PCTC ride leader. If that is what you'd like to do, please consult the ride organiser before the day of the ride to ensure someone knows and is able to bring you back.
