This weeks club ride is on Friday to allow recuperation before Sundays 2-Up time trial for those that wish to do both events.
So it's the end of base training and time to start the build phase of
training as we look to peak in the summner months. This week it's the
logest of our traditional routes, the Shaftsbury Century. Actually it's
only 85 miles for those starting in Ashurst but a full 100 can be made
up by starting from Brockenhurst.
Because of the distance this ride will run slightly slower than the usual Saturday run, probably about 16 MPH.
Start time is St Saviours Church in Brockenhurst at 0820 or Ashurst Station at 0900.
Route will be:
Ashurst, Bartley, Calmore, Hill Street, Wellow, Plaitford, Nomansland,
Downton, Nunton, Coombe Bisset, Stratford Tony, Berwick St John,
Ludwell, Shaftsbury, LUNCH
Tollard Royal, Sixpenny Handley, Cranborne, Alderholt, Fordingbridge, Cadnam, Ashurst.
There may be a late change to the route and a slightly better route around Cranborne.

Weather forecast is dry but cold so make sure you've got a good jacket
especially as we will stop for lunch. Please bring a lock for the stop
as it may be in the town.
Hope to see a good turnout on Friday and Sunday
