Having failed to make it to all the way from Weymouth to Brighton on our initial trip the previous summer, Steve and I decided to drag our bikes down to the south coast once more, to finish the job.

I can't quite recall how it happened (although there was almost certainly alcohol involved), but it was around this time that our south coast jaunt somehow transformed itself into a mission to cycle the entire British coastline. For the time being though, we had a long weekend to get ourselves as far as Brighton, and this was plenty to be getting on with – having spent most of Thursday afternoon and evening hanging around pubs in London, we eventually rocked up in Brighton around midnight, and were highly fortunate to find ourselves B&B accommodation at that hour.
