Club Ride – Saturday 21st May

Slightly dodgy weather forecast tomorrow so planning a slightly shorter but non stop ride this week. So make sure you’ve enough food and drink for the ride, we’ll do a quick stop halfway round to refuel but that will be just long enough to eat a bar.
Usual meet at 0850 for 0900 depart from the main car park in Brookley Road, Brockenhurst (behind Sainsburys).

Out via Rhinefield, Bolderwood, across Ocknell’s Plain, Roger Penney Way, Lover, Nomansland, Furzey, Bartley, Minstead, and back to Bolderwood. Option to cut short there if weather turns bad. But otherwise down via Red Shoot, Poulner, Crow, Burley and back to Brock. Planned coffee shop at the new(ish) Rosie Lea’s shop at Setley Ridge. Same cakes but plenty of room for bikes.

Total distance just over 90K
Will be aiming for 27-28 KPH average pace
