Sunday 12th May – Three on tourist route to Weymouth
Only 23 miles today, with a couple of hills. Pete T, Lindsay and Rick took a leisurely tourist route to Weymouth via Upwey and Radipole park. Out past Nothe Fort to the pier and observation tower, then back along the promenade for the usual picnic, including danish pastries.
Dodging pedestrians along the sea front to Furzy Cliff. An exploratory cycle through two caravan parks linked onto Sutton Poyntz and up Green Hill.
A discussion about the history of Long Barrow tumuli was followed by a swoop downhill past Whitcombe Racing stables. Who is funding that operation eh? To finish the tourist sites a stop at The Screen on the Square and The Buttercross Bakery. Home for a surprisingly early 10:30 a.m.
