Round Britain Rally: West Sussex

Sunday seemed a good day to pick up another localish landmark, so we set off for - *snerk* - Cocking.

In previous years I'd ridden past Biggin Hill on an airshow weekend and found only light traffic, so I saw no need to make a detour. Ha! Half an hour of queuing and filtering in blazing sun (which vanished when we hit the open road and a spot of light and warmth would have been welcome) and we were finally moving more freely.

What with this, that (a closed road and diversion onto the A22) and the other (my accidentally taking a country lane rather than the A272 at Coolham) the journey took longer than anticipated, but fortunately there was a tea shop still open for refreshments. Oh, and we found the landmark too.
