Friday 29th June 2007 was my 32nd birthday. (When bored the previous evening, it occurred to me that if you were into binary, this would actually be my 100000th. Luckily, I’m not into binary…)
A dreary rainy day at work was followed by a beautiful evening. The clouds parted, the sun broke through and the South Downs beckoned Si, Jim and me up towards Devil’s Dyke, along to Truleigh Hill, down to Southwick and back to Brighton with roaring tailwind.
I’ve been playing with Google Maps a little – Here’s the route we took
Ended up at the Robin Hood pub by Brighton’s Norfolk Square. I’ve only recently discovered this place. A friendly kind of pub with decent beer, excellent post-ride pizza and some fantastic photography on the walls. Apparently, all the pub’s profits go to charity. The three of us sat among Friday night revellers in our sweaty biking gear and were joined by Nic for a few happy pints.
A great birthday evening – a few miles on the hills followed by beers with some of my favourite people.
