Club Ride - Saturday 27th February

Forecast for cold morning this Saturday but as it's not been wet for a few days hopefully not any chance of ice. If anybody does see back ice locally today at these temperatures please add a comment and we can take a view whether to go ahead or not.

So plan will be to meet in the main car park in Brookley Road, Brockenhurst at 0850 for a 0900 departure.

Out via Sway Road, Setthorns, Burley, Braggers, Poulner, Harbridge, Alderholt, Sandleheath, Fordingbridge, Stockton and probable coffee stop at 46K in Hyde.

Then return via Ogdens, Red Shoot. Then at 58K options of a bit if though and off practice across the airfield road at Ocknells Plain and then a return to Brock via Bolderwood for a 87K loop.

Pace circa 17MPH depending on how windy it is

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

Club Ride - Saturday 6th February

Forecast for Saturday is for 40-50+ MPH winds so not safe for a group ride. Therefore no club ride this week.
