Thursday Night Chain Gang 2nd July

Normal chain gang tonight

Start from outside St Saviours Church at 1900

Phil H and Phil J will be there for 1850

I won't be on the chain gang for a little while so this will be the plan until further notice



Club "A" Ride Saturday 4th July

This Saturdays ride will be the Easter weekend Shaftesbury ride I have shamelessly copied it from the email Barry sent out in April.

Depart will be from car park in Brookley Road Brockenhurst at 0900
Rendezvous with any other rides at Ashurst station 0930
The Lamb at Nomansland approx. 1030-1040

Probable coffee / cake stop at the community shop in Borad Chalke after 68K and lunch at pub or café in Shaftsbury after about 90K
Please bring a small lock if you have one in case we have to leave bikes outside of the cafe

That will be just over halfway

Bring money for lunch and two spare tubes as it will be a long day. Ride will be steady and probably around 16MPH average to reflect the longer distance.

Its called Shaftesbury 2012 as it’s the same route we’ve used before (more or less)

Neil knows of a slightly different route on the way back which would make a pleasant change, so we will probably defer to him after Zig zag hill and let him guide us.

Cheers Phil

Club "B" Ride Saturday 4th July

Please to announce the return of the “B” ride this week

Here is an approximation in google maps -

About 37 miles, about 15mph average, with a few hills and a couple of options to cut short depending on who is there and how we are doing.

Club "A" ride Saturday 20th June

This weeks club ride will be shorter than those of late but with an option to join Phil and I for some extra hills as we’re getting into our last training block for the Etape Du Tour.

Main route will be:
Brockenhurst, Bolderwood, Moyles Court, Stuckton, Blissford, Hyde, Poulner, Braggers Lane, Burley and back to Brock via Setthorns and the newly opened Marlpit Oak Road (hooray).

That will be around 66K and around 2.5 hours at a target pace of 28KMH.

Then there will be an optional ride back over Bolderwood to Moyles Court and back to add some hills and possibly another loop to Emery Down.

No plans for coffee stop as its a shorted ride but plenty of choices back at the finish point.

Depart from Brock at 0900 so please aim to be at the start for 0850
