Club "A" ride Saturday 20th June

This weeks club ride will be shorter than those of late but with an option to join Phil and I for some extra hills as we’re getting into our last training block for the Etape Du Tour.

Main route will be:
Brockenhurst, Bolderwood, Moyles Court, Stuckton, Blissford, Hyde, Poulner, Braggers Lane, Burley and back to Brock via Setthorns and the newly opened Marlpit Oak Road (hooray).

That will be around 66K and around 2.5 hours at a target pace of 28KMH.

Then there will be an optional ride back over Bolderwood to Moyles Court and back to add some hills and possibly another loop to Emery Down.

No plans for coffee stop as its a shorted ride but plenty of choices back at the finish point.

Depart from Brock at 0900 so please aim to be at the start for 0850

Club "A" ride Saturday 13th June

This weeks ride is just over 100K with a couple of options to cut short if you wish.

I won’t be there this week as I’ve a race on Sunday so have kept the route to ones that should be familiar:

Brockenhurst, depart from main car park in Brookley Road at 0900

Out via Burley Road, Setthorns, Pitmore Lane, Pilley, East End, Sowley, Buckles Hard, Beaulieu, Hill Top, Exbury, Lepe, Calshot, Hilltop, Dibden Purlieu.
Just past half way when you hit the old Roman Road so good place for a bar stop.
Iplex Cross, Beaulieu Road, Lyndhurst, Ashurst, Woodlands, Bartley, Minstead, Emery Down, Bolderwood and back to Brock for 104K

Have a good ride and hope there’s a good turnout

1 loop of the Burley loop, if the group is large like last week we will split into smaller packs to be easier for cars to pass

Last week at least 3 riders turned into the start without signalling when being followed by cars (both left and right turners). Can you please ensure that you show consideration for drivers when pulling into the start point.
