I’ll use any excuse to go for a ride, so when I have to go and meet a Recruitment Consultant in Crawley I decide to go on the bike. Who knows maybe it will make me a little more memorable when new roles come in!
My meeting finishes by 3.30, and the sun is shining so why not take the long route home?
I have no idea what route I’m going to take, but start of heading south on A23.
I then turn off onto the B2215 and just follow signposts to whatever village name takes my fancy!
As I past through Plumpton it feels like the right time to start heading home, so with my GPS set to curvy route I hit the Go Home button.
The first turning it tells me to take is left onto Allington Lane…hmm looks a little narrow but I go for it.
It also looks like perhaps this route is liable to flooding. Well that’s the only reason I can think of for this giant ruler at the side of the road. Strange as there does not appear to be any large rivers nearby.
Unfortunately my tracking app Rever, paused when I stopped to take the photos and didn’t automatically start again.( note to self to check in future)
But I ended up returning home on roads I know well via Lindfied, Ardingly and Turners Hill.
What a pleasant way to spend a sunny autumn afternoon and all the better for being unplanned.
