Expect the forest to be very busy this week at the start of the school holidays to plan to repeat a ride we did last month up to the Chalke Valley and back.
This week’s ride as follows:
Meet at 0850 for 0900 depart from main car park in Brookley Road, Brockenhurst.
Out via Sway Road, Setthorns, Burley, Braggers, Crow, Poulner, Harbridge, Alderholt, Martin and then coffee at the Community Shop in Broad Chalke after about 60K.
Return via Chalke Valley, Coombe Bissett, Rockbourne, Sandleheath, Fordingbridge, Gorley, Red Shoot, Bolderwood, Brock.
Total distance 117Km and 1000M of climbing so might be a fraction slower than last week’s flatter route
I won’t be out this week so please load the route onto your Garmin’s or other devices. Quick note to advise that next week’s ride (30th July) will be an early start and similar to last week’s route. I’ll post details out later.
