Now that the snow / floods have cleared we should be back to normal riding this weekend. For those who started their base training in January you may be on a recovery week with reduced volume so this weeks ride offers two distance options.
Start is from St Saviours Church in Burley Road, Brockenhurst at 0900
Saturday. Please be at the start for 0850. There are new no parking
signs on the gravel road by the church so suggest park in The Rise which
is opposite the church and free all day Saturday.
Brockenhurst, Setthorns, Sway, Pilley, Norleywood, Beaulieu, Hill Top, Exbury, Lepe, Blackfield, Exbury, Beaulieu, Hatchet Pond
Brockenhurst. That loop is around 35 miles.
There will then be a 2nd loop option as follows:
Ornamental Drive, Burley Lawn, Bisterne, Brockenhurst
This loop will add another 15 miles
Numbers permitting we will have two groups running at different speeds but both concentrating on riding at a base intensity.
You may well have seen / heard about a tragic accident in Sway two weeks
ago where a local club cyclist from Velo Club St Raphael, James
Atherton was killed on Pitmore Lane in Sway. I propose that as a club we
pay our respects to James and his memory by riding slowly and silently
from Sway War Memorial and down Pitmore Lane. If you are not on the club
ride but just wish to join for the tribute please be at the war
memorial by 0915 as the group should pass through just after that.
Hope to see a good turnout.
