Club Ride – Saturday 24th March

Few of the regular Saturday riders are doing the Dorset Coast 200 on Sunday (good luck) so plan this week is for a two lap ride to enable those riding Sunday to have a shorter ride on Saturday.

Meet as the usual point in the main car park in Brookley Road, Brockenhurst at 0850 for an 0900 depart. Lap 1 out via Ten Bends to Burley, Braggers, Crow, Poulner, Red Shoot and Bolderwood back to Brockenhurst for a 50Km loop. Mid ride coffee stop in Brock where Julie will be doing a small bake for Sport Relief so anybody that wishes to donate to Sport Relief can.

Lap 2 out via Balmer Lawn, Beaulieu, Ipley Cross, Ashurst, Woodlands, Bartley, Newbridge, Furzey, Bramble Hill and back to Brock for a second time via Bolderwood for 107Km total.

All welcome to ride 1 or two laps

Club Ride – Saturday 17th March

Once again, the weather has conspired against us on a Saturday. So this week plan to get out the mountain bikes and head off road. Meeting point will be the Canadian War Memorial at the top of Bolderwood and we’ll do a number of off road loops to Acres Down, Burley, Shobley etc. Meet at 0850 for an 0900 depart. Probably about 3 hours but we’ll keep returning to the Canadian War Memorial so riders can do as many loops as they want.
Afterwards, if anybody wants return to my place for some soup and watch Milan San Remo they’re welcome. I’ll take a car to the start so if you are riding to the start you can chuck washbag / change of clothes into my car and shower and change before the race. If you do want to do this, please let me know via and I can let Julie know how much soup to make.

Club Ride – Saturday 10th March

Now that the snow and ice has gone back to normal with a 100Km ride around the forest this week. Might have a few showers to contend with so dress appropriately and have lights on. Pace will be steady so that anybody doubling up and riding the TT on Sunday doesn’t get too battered.
Usual meet at 0850 for a 0900 depart from the main car park in Brookley Road, Brockenhurst (behind Sainsbury’s).

Out via Ten Bends, Setthorns, Sway, Pilley, East Boldre, Beaulieu, Ipley Cross, Colbury, Ashurst, Woodlands, Bartley, Newbridge, Nomansland, Lover, Hale, Woodgreen, Godshill, Hyde and then probable coffee stop at Hockey’s Farm Shop in South Gorley.

Then back via Red Shoot, Bolderwood and Brock for 100Km.

Hopefully everybody looking forward to being back on the road rather than the turbo.
