Tried the commute route today!

    I've fancied cycling to work for a while, but the A272 uphill double bend is just too dangerous for me to do the whole run. I may be a wuss but I have seen the wrecked cars there!

    However, having spotted a no-charge parking area in the village 4 miles from the works (not saying where as I don't want the council restricting it!) I loaded the bike into the car today and tried the route from works to parking space.

    A very nice little ride in the country, some of it is even on a former BOAT now closed to 4-wheeled vehicles :tongue:

    So I think I will become an occasional commuter, if it still counts if you only do it half-way.

    I'm not near the Downs as I'm in Midhurst, slap bang in the bit between the Downs and Greensand Ridge...

    However, I have an MTB on order which will arrive in next fortnight :tongue:
