Club Ride Saturday 7th February

Weather forecast looks OK, not forecast to drop below freezing tonight and no rain forecast so hopefully no ice. If anybody sees good reason to delay the start please email me or add comment to the blog by 0730 and we will delay the start. Otherwise it just looks like a day for layers, hats and double gloves.

This weeks club ride will be as follows:

Start 0900 from the main car park in Brookley Road Brockenhurst
Out via Wilverley, Burley, Braggers, Crow, Moyles Court, Harbridge, Fordingbridge. Return via Stuckton, Frogham, Ogdens, Mockbeggar, Red Shoot. And then at the end of the 2.5 mile strip of the old airfield we’ll add a bit of intensity with one or two repeats of the road across Ocknells Plain.

Pace for the ride will be 16MPH but we will add some zone 3 efforts on the rides on the old airfield road.

Return to Brock via Ornamental Drive.

Distance 50-55 miles depending on how many repeats of the airfield we do.
