Club Ride – Saturday 23rd March

Time to start stretching the Saturday ride to help those who have foolishly entered the ride to York / TINAT / Fred Whitton etc. So, this weeks ride will stretch to 130Km.
Usual meet at 0850 for an 0900 depart from the main car park in Brookley Road, Brockenhurst.
Out via Balmer Lawn, Beaulieu Road and onto Ashurst. Through Woodlands, Bartley, and out of the forest via New Road and West Wellow. North to Shootash and Awbridge and then west towards Lockerly and Dean (plus Dean Hill). Back via Whiteparish, Downton and Wood Green. Coffee stop and top up supplies at the community shop in Wood Green as we’ll be close to three hours in by then. Return via Hale and Roger Penney Way then across the airfield to Milkham. Option here to cut back to Brock via Bolderwood for about 105Km. Main route will then take us to Red Shoot, Moyles Court and a loop around Ogdens and a return to Brock via Red Shoot and Bolderwood for just over 130Km and over 1000M of climbing.
Pace will be circa 27KmH although I suspect there may be a few heavy legs for those that did last nights turbo session.

Sunday Club Ride- 17th March 2019

Meet at main car park in Brookley Rd, Brockenhurst 8.50 a.m for a 9.00 a.m start.
After two consecutive Sunday Hurricanes everyone will no doubt be champing at the bit to get out this weekend.
This week the plan is to ride out of Brockenhurst along Rhinefield Drive, up Bolderwood and then down past Linwood to High Wood lane, through Poulner and along Ringwood lane. From there we turn up Braggers lane before heading to Burley. From Burley we enter Station rd, go up Wilverley rise and down back into into Brockenhurst to complete the 50K
Forecast is cold but pleasant (so far) so hope to see another good turnout.
Course is downloadable here.

Club Ride – Saturday 16th March – OFF ROAD

Very high winds forecast for Saturday and not conducive to peloton style riding so the plan is to take the club ride off road this week. Meet at the usual place in the main car park in Brookley Road Brockenhurst. Route will be out via Sway Road and onto the old railway line towards Wootton Bridge. Opportunity for those coming from the South West to meet us there. Then onto Holmlsey back on the railway line, Castle Hill, under the A35, Shobley, Red Shoot, and back to Brock via Bolderwood. Coffee stop at Melt in Brockenhurst around 1200 and then those that want a longer ride can plan part B. Route just under 60Km.
Pace will be dependent on riders / equipment. Cross or MTB’s and pace will be kept to suit any MTB riders.
