DAY 9 - Lyndhurst - Ashford via Brighton , 161 miles (approx).
The home straight! A nice early morning run through the heart of the New Forest, followed by a less nice early morning run around Southampton and Portsmouth on the M27. Suddenly, we’re east of the IoW and back on home turf. Along the South Coast ; ice creams and posing on Brighton Seafront, then off to Beachy Head for a last photo opportunity. Eastbourne, Hastings , Home. Simples!
