Thursday Night Chain Gang – 14th June


After the last few weeks of freak weather on Thursdays and a couple of inter club TT’s we have a clear night for a chain gang. So, for the remainder of June and through to end of July start time will be 1900. Usual meeting point outside St Saviours Church, Burley Road, Brockenhurst.
All welcome. For those that haven’t ridden the chain gang before it is for all abilities. Any riders that get dropped usually form up into 2-ups or smaller groups and continue at a lower pace and all meet up again at the finish. Any riders that are stronger than the group will end up doing more turns on the front towards the end.
Hope to see a good turnout tonight

Out via Rhinefield, Bolderwood, Red Shoot, Fordingbridge. Up through Whitsbury and hopefully the resurfaced road will have bedded down by now. Then along the Chalke Valley to Broad Chalke. Then a bit further along the Chalke Valley and return via Tollard Royal, Sixpenny Handley, Cranbourne (for coffee at the garden centre (and birthday cake for Phil H).

Club Ride – Saturday 26th May


Forecast for this week is for a few showers so planning on keeping the plan a little bit flexible. Core ride will just be a 88Km loop around the forest with a coffee stop in Burley at 76Km. At that point we can make a plan for those wanting to ride long or decide to call it a day and go home to watch the Giro.
So meet at 0850 for an 0900 depart from the main car park in Brookley Road, Brockenhurst. Out via Balmer Lawn to Hatchet Pond. Down for a loop around East Boldre and back to Beaulieu. Up to Lyndhurst, Emery Down, Minstead, Bolderwood, Red Shoot, Poulner, Crow, and onto the Cider Shop Café in Burley. Then either back to Brock or another loop for the mileage monsters.
