Heavy rain forecast. So ride cancelled. Phil

This week’s ride leaves via Burley rd then turns towards Sway then Pitmore lane, Sway rd before meeting the A337 just north of Lymington.

Club Ride – Saturday 6th October


Not a good forecast for this week especially from 1200 so plan to keep it short this week. We can take a view on the day about adding on some extra mileage or not depending on who’s out and who’s up for it.
So plan to meet at 0850 for an 0900 depart from the main car park in Brookley Road, Brockenhurst. Out via Rhinefield, Bolderwood, Red Shoot. Around Ogdens, Hyde and onto Fordingbridge and Whitsbury. Turn there for the run to Café Velo where we can get inside if it’s wet via Rockbourne, Sandleheath. From Café Velo back to Brock via Burley to including the coffee stop should finish around 1230 before the worst of the weather.

Club Ride – Saturday 29th September


Weather forecast looks good so plan on doing the route we had previously planned for last week. This weeks club ride will be a loop of the Isle of Wight. Plan to get the 0840 ferry from Yarmouth. We will mainly follow the marked route either clockwise or anti clockwise depending on how the winds looking and probably add a bit extra and go up to The Needles. There will be probably be one coffee stop along the way and then another in Yarmouth at the end. Probably returning on the 1505 or 1605 ferry.

Sunday Club Ride - 30th September 2018


Meet at main car park in Brookley Rd, Brockenhurst 8.50 a.m for a 9.00 a.m start.
Same plan as last weeks cancelled ride.
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 Ride.
This is Phil’s final Sunday away for a while so if any of our experienced group riders can make it to lead the group that would be great.
route can can be downloaded here.

Club Ride – Saturday 22ndSeptember


I keep seeing different weather forecasts for Saturday but have taken the safe option to postpone the IOW ride until next week and keep this weeks ride shortish and close to home so that we have flexibility if heavy rain or winds prove disruptive.
Usual meet at 0850 for an 0900 depart from the main car park in Brookley Road, Brockenhurst. Out via Ten Bends to Burley, Crow, Poulner and return to Brock via Red Shoot and Bolderwood for the first loop of 45Km. Then out again via Sway, Pennington and Lymington and coffee stop at Mabel’s Café in Shallowmead Garden Centre near Boldre.
Then assuming weather is OK another loop around Pilley, Norleywood, Bucklers Hard, Beaulieu and Brock for an 80Km ride and hopefully home before the heavy rain that’s forecast. Those that wish can add another loop after that if desired.
