Settled down for the night at 22.30 last night. It was a great day of cycling and wandering around South Downs.
This morning it was the usual. Scrambled eggs, salad and coffee. Was out at 10.00 or there about.
Yesterday, there were 4 cyclists and 3 walkers that joined me on the campsite. None of them had a shower in the evening nor in the morning. How?
Today there are 3 walkers and all of them had a shower and washed their gear.
Today I decided to get to Chichester and then to Selsey and Witterings. I thought I will be alone on those roads. What a traffic. It was car after car after car… Non stop. Between Chichester and Selsey. From Selsey it was the first bit of getting out. Then I found a gravel and then some side roads to Witterings. Both Witterings were absolutely full of cars. West Wittering car park – not a free spot.
Managed to escape through some side roads after suffering the massive traffic headingto Rowlands Castle.
From there I realised that I was getting well into a 100+km for the day, so I headed back to big Tesco’s in Chichester for the evening provisions and then came back to the camp.
Today it was smoked mackerel, prawns, nectarine, peach, avocado and white onion salad. Delicious with a splash of mustard, pepper and salt.
Long hoursin the saddle today. The road from Chichester pretty much past Rowlands Castle was absolutely awful. Nearly 70km of a bone shaker. I’m glad my eyeballs are still in my eye sockets.
In West Sussex even the tiny roads have got better surface than those around the Sea Resorts. And another really appalling thing. No infrastructure for cycling or walking along those main roads. There are so many residents, people running on the main roads. Recipe for disaster.
Time to have a beer.
