Club Ride - Saturday 28th November

Looks like a nice day but cold for this weeks club ride.

Usual plan for the depart, meet at 0850 for an 0900 depart from the main car park in Brockenhurst (behind Sainsburys).

Route this week will be:

Brockenhurst, Balmer Lawn, Hatchet Pond, East End, Bucklers Hard, Beaulieu, Ipley Cross, Lyndhurst, Bolderwood, Red Shoot, Linwood, Poulner, Crow, Burley, Setthorns, Brock

Keeping to the winter base riding pace so hopefully keeping to zone 2 for the majority. Aiming for 50 miles, at 16MPH so just over 3 hours, probably coffee stop at the Burley Tea Rooms.

Club Ride Saturday 7th November

This weeks club ride will be the loop around Lepe with a few options to cut short for anybody that wants a shorter ride

As it’s now winter riding and everybody has finished racing it’s time to cut down the speed and get into the practice of building base for next year so we’ll be aiming to average 16MPH

So for those that are riding this weekend suggested plan is as follows:

Just over 100K with a target pace of 25KMH

Depart from the main car park in Brockenhurst opposite Tesco at 0900 so please aim to be at the start at 0850

Route will be out via the Burley Road, Setthorns, Sway, Pilley, East End, Sowley, Bucklers Hard, Beaulieu, Lepe, Blackfield, Debden Purlieu, Beaulieu Road, Lyndhurst, Emery Down, Bolderwood, Burley and Brock
