Club "A" ride - Saturday 2nd July

This weeks “A” ride will be a day ride around the Isle of Wight. Depart from the usual place in the Brookley Road car park at 0900 sharp and ride to the ferry port at Lymington or meet at the ferry terminal. We will be catching the 1000 ferry so need to aim to arrive at 0930.

Then it will be the 100K ride around the island with a stop somewhere for lunch. We will probably follow the posted round the island route but if anybody has a preferred GPX file please let me know.

B/C ride details to follow later in the week

Thursday Night Chan Gang - 19th June

Apologies but chain gang tomorrow will not run. I forgot to check the club website and there’s an inter club TT on the P164/15 at 1900 tomorrow. So if you were planning to ride go over to Parc Pale ay Lyndhurst and use that energy for a 15 mile TT

Now that summer arrived it’s time to take the Saturday club runs to the seaside. Plan this week is for both rides to go to Lepe.

A ride 18MPH average, route at just over 60 miles with a coffee stop in Beaulieu and optional ice cream in Lepe

B/C rides will follow to Lepe, full route is 41 miles but it can be cut a little shorter by turning round at Lepe and cutting out Blackfield

Hope to see a good turnout and everybody sharpening those tan lines.
