First ride of the new year and unfortunately the Saturday forecast looks a bit iffy to say the least. Hopefully just showers and not continuous rain so the plan will be to keep the ride fairly central so that we can cut short if it turns out bad.
Meet as usual in main car park in Brookley Road, Brockenhurst (behind Sainsburys) at 0850 for 0900 depart.
We'll run at a winter pace of approx 16MPH average, hopefully keeping to zone 2 for most riders for most of the time.
Can't get into Garmin Connect today to create a GPX file but route will be out via Rhinefield, Bolderwood, Red Shoot, Poulner, Crow, Bransgore, Burley, Brock (approx 2 hours).
Then assuming weather OK and spirits high a loop of the chang gang course via Rhinefield, A35, Burley, Wilverley and Brock for another hour or so.
Coffee stop either Burley or Brock depending on weather.
