Day 3 – From Midhurst to Portsmouth, 25km – 105km total

Bad weather scheduled for today by the Met Office didn’t materialize. It was hot and sunny with calm winds all the way to Fishbourne, where we boarded a train to Portsmouth. Not a drop of rain or a hint of thunder. We should have cycled all the way to Portsmouth, but I had to take a train to Waterloo in order to pick up our passports from the travel agent with Dianna’s visa.

The ride began with a a steepish climb leaving Midhurst towards Cocking hill. The road to Cocking hill is quite busy. The remainder of the ride was slightly downhill/undulating through South Downs national park. Very scenic and authentically British.

Tomorrow at 7am we will board the ferry to Caen.
