Cycling (Arundel Midhurst Petersfi) 5:50:00  71.0 mi (4:56 / mi) +890m 4:45 / mi
This summer's reprise. Second go at the first long ride I did on my new bike, the day after buying it, almost exactly 21 years ago. It broke me that time - never thought I'd manage the ride back from Petersfield. Wanted to see whether the last year's time in the saddle made the challenge any easier. Route was Runcton, Barnham, Arundel, Houghton (where Jan joined), Bignor, Selham, Midhurst (where Jan left after a coffee), Bordon Wood, Petersfield, Buriton, Finchdean, Funtington, Fishbourne, Hunston, home. Logged it then as 75 miles but it wasn't quite. Took 8 hours with stops. Today there was some fatigue facing the headwind in the last 10, but nothing like last time. Mind you, I didn't have the nav to do, and I had more of the gear. Enjoyable throughout, despite temps in mid 30s. All the shade helped. Couldn't believe the sun baked queues for Wittering and Selsey as I got near home. Boris voters.
