Club Ride Saturday 10th September

Forecast this week for a few showers so have prepared routes that can be cut short if required.
Plan to meet at 0850 in the main car park in Brookley Road, Brockenhurst as usual for 0900 depart.
Out via Burley Road, Setthorns, Pitmore Lane, Pilley, East Boldre, Beaulieu, Hill Top, Exbury, Lepe and out to the tea room in Dibden Purlieu at around 50K. Good idea to take a small lock for the tea room as the bikes are a little out of view.
Back via Roman Road to Tesco’s and then to Ipley Cross. Option to cut short to Brock from here or stick to plan and continue to Colbury, Ashurst, Woodlands, Bartley, Minstead, Acres Down, Bolderwood and back to Brock for 93K.
Hopefully they’ll be riders out for both A and B rides. A pace circa 28KMH, B ride as per the riders who are out.

I won’t be out this week but will be back next week.

Have a good ride

Club Rides

We've had a number of enquiries from new and prospective members about club rides and a number are looking for a ride a bit slower than the current ride. Are there others that would like a similar ride? If so please let me know and we might re-start doing the A and B rides again if there's demand. Regards Barry
