Sunday 22nd April. Adgestone to Bognor Regis. 34 miles.

What a storm that was last night! I’ve not heard a storm like that for a long time, and I don’t think I’ve been in a tent in that bad a storm, apart from in Spain when I got caught in a mini tornado! One good thing at least I didn’t need my head torch on with all the lightning! Not too sure how long the storm went on for but I remember the rain stopping at around midnight.

Very leisurely start to the day, I got up at my normal time of about 6 o’clock, but I didn’t rush to pack away I thought I’d let everything dry out which it didn’t! But it was still good to be lazy!

I caught the Fastcat from the island back to Portsmouth; then it was a nice fast ride home with a good tailwind.

Once home I had a quick couple of pints in the pub before coming home to dry the tent out and wash my clothes ready for the off again tomorrow.

    1. Spring, best time of the year to go away, the days are long and it’s normally a very pleasant temperature!
      On a different note I now know why you complain about the state of the roads on the island! The other day cycling through Newport was a nightmare potholes and bumps everywhere!

  1. Lovely photos! Lovely pier!Have you been to Adlestrop? Edward Thomas wrote a poem about it. Reminds me of Adgestone. Why don.t you take me and Julie on the green route to Paris next time. Or get a tandem for you and Julie.

    1. I may have passed through Adlestrop I don’t know!
      Get you’re bike ready then, I maybe going sooner than you think??
      I have offered to take Julie in the past but she doesn’t like ferries very much!
