Day 4 saw us head to a small place called Newton, near North Boarhunt. I’m loving the place names I’m coming across. So many cool sounding locations. There was a window of dry weather in the morning so we got ourselves together quickly and set off. I didn’t enjoy this trip as the roads were busy with little space for cyclists. There wasn’t much to report on the scenery front. I arrived at the next campsite after 2 hours of riding. The venue was basic shall we say. I waited for Dad to arrive in the van but he was delayed due to traffic. After he arrived it started raining and it didn’t stop all afternoon and evening. My shoulder survived the three long days. I’m still keeping an eye on it. It’s certainly not back to full fitness. Anyway, the hip seems to be ok so I’ll continue to look after myself. 39km completed today!
Here was our temporary internet office on Day 4.
Day 5 rolled round and it was still raining. We assessed the weather forecast and decided to leave in the morning. It was drizzling but we needed to hit the road. The route was flat and not that challenging. Navigating my way through Portsmouth was the most difficult part. I arrived at the next campsite in Chichester soaking wet but happy to have completed the 31km. The campsite is lovely spot with great facilities. We’ve got two nights here as tomorrow is a rest day. Hopefully I can find a place to get a massage because I’ve got a lot of miles to cover next week. I’m looking forward to a rest!
Day 5 start point and on the road with Dad.
