Evening Ride - Arun Leisure Centre to Sidlesham, The Anchor

Six of us met on this sunny but very blustery evening - Janet, Ray, Steve, Carol, Jo, and me. The ride to Sidlesham follows a south-westerly route, so this evening we had a very gusty wind against us almost the whole way there!

We went from Felpham through Bognor along the seafront to Aldwick, then Stoney Stile Lane to Nyetimber where we took Summer Lane across the fields to Bowley Farm. Then we joined NCN Route 88 across more tracks via Fisher to Chalder Farm. Officially the route then by-passses Chalder Farm, but I took the "old" route through the farmyard so that we could briefly stop on the other side of it to inspect the remains of Chalder station - formerly on the old Selsey Tramway (closed 1935). Late last year the undergrowth was cut back to reveal the old platform still in situ (the corrugated iron building long gone) - but the weeds were rapidly taking over again and only a very small portion was still visible from the road.  

We did not leave the pub until about 21.40 but the wind had almost completely disappeared and it was still light enough to attempt a return trip via Pagham harbour. We dropped down into Sidlesham proper and across more farmtracks, with only one stile to negotiate before climbing on to Pagham Wall, the embankment that runs around the west and north sides of the harbour.  Riding along this with caution, due to the bumps and the undergrowth,we were treated to an extremely pleasant view of the full moon  reflecting across the water and the mud flats, whilst nearer the old Salt House the swans were bedding down for the night.

Arriving back on the tarmac in Pagham, it was still just about light and we had not met a soul since Sidlesham.

We returned to Felpham via the Bay Estate, Barrack Lane, and, in an act of uncompromising civil disobedience, cycled the length of the prom from Aldwick right through to Felpham.    

My evenings mileage was 19.5 - over half of which was off-road in some form or another.

Graham.
