Forecast for Saturday is grim – again and not conducive to group riding so I will make this weeks ride Sunday.
We will reuse last weeks plan of a three lap ride with each lap starting and finishing in Brockenhurst to allow riders to do as much or as little as they wish.
Forecast is for showers so plan is to keep local and ride 1, 2 or 3 loops of 16-17 miles around Brockenhurst so riders can stay out as long as they wish. Order of laps may be varied depending on who is out.
A ride 3 laps, B ride 2 laps
If the numbers for the B ride are low lap 1 will be at B ride pace
Car park, Brookley Road, Balmer Lawn, Hatchet Pond, East Boldre, Norleywood, Pilley, Shirley Holms, Sway War Memorial, Sway Road, Brockenhurst
Brock, Rhinefield Road, A35, Lyndhurst Road, Burley Lawn, Mill Lane, White Buck, Wilverely, Brock
Lap 3 (A ride)
Rhinefield Road, Bolderwood, Emery Down, Lyndhurst (optional short cut to Brock), Beaulieu, Hatchet Pond, Brock
For the A ride take pace down to 16-17MPH average as we’re in the transition phase before we start base training for 2015. Total distance for 3 laps is 60 miles in around 3 hours 30
Plenty of option for café stops in Brock / Beaulieu / Lyndhurst as the ride feels or do as last week and ride to the finish
Depart 0900 sharp from main car park in Brookley Road Brock opposite Tesco. Please aim to be at the start for 0850.
