Thanks to warpedboy2 for leading and organising a great ride today, much appreciated and very enjoyable.

Good also to see Anthony and catch up, get some lunch and enjoy some very favourable weather. Definately a run to re-do in the future.

Not a great deal of pictures taken but here's one to be going on with - very small pic due to resizing and getting under limit.

Cheers :)

Will do in a day or two, I need to clean it up as I managed to stop logging for part of the way. Hope you get well soon.

Edit: Route from station to Carats on Shoreham seafront here http://ridewithgps.com/trips/476490

Also updated in my GPS list, here: http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=115483

Edit 2: If you choose OSM cycle on the ridewithgps.com website, you can see the rest of the Downs Link route.

Had a great ride today, not as muddy as I feared, and the sun shined on us all day :D

Got a little bit "lost" leaving Horsham, but managed to wing it thanks to a handily placed bridalway and a bit of local knowledge.

Thanks to DA-EVO and Anthony for the excellent company, looking forward to doing it again.

Thanks both for a nice ride, and to Marcus for having the idea and organising such brilliant weather. Where was everybody else? Don't they like cycling? :roll:

Maybe another time we could do the Horsham to Guildford to Horsham leg?

Thanks for that Dylan. I'm pretty sure the last time I was there we looked at a proposed housing development at Broadbridge Heath, then our Horsham-based host took us across country and we must have joined the Downs Link somewhere near Slinfold, which is about 5 miles further up than Copsale!

Maybe on a future occasion we ought to ask Ibelieveinfixies for recommended routes out of Horsham.

I checked the pic and we were at west grinstead at 11.15 but not long after we had a puncture so doomed not to meet up. Hope you had a good cycle because if we had done it today it would have been terrible!
