Slightly different ride for the last club ride of the year. Built in some flexibility for those looking for a shorter ride who can either join the first of second part.
Usual meet at the main car park in Brookley Road, Brockenhurst (behind Sainsbury’s) at 0850 for 0900 depart. Forecast is to warm up a little and no fog.
Out via Sway Road, Pitmore Lane, Pilley, East End, Sowley, Bucklers Hard, Beaulieu, Hill Top, Dibden Purlieu, Applemore, Ipley Cross, Beaulieu and back to Brock via Mill Lane. For anybody wishing to join for the second loop we should pass Brockenhurst station just before 1100 at just over the 50K mark.
Second loop up through Rhinefield, Bolderwood, Red Shoot, Poulner, Crow, Burley and back to Brock for a total of 95K.
Probably best opopportunity for coffee stop will be Burley on the second loop before riders start peeling off. If not finish at Rosie Lea’s in Setley Ridge as usual.
Looking for a nice easy winter pace of 25-26Kmh.
Hope to see lots of new xmas gear out on the ride tomorrow
