This week we’ll have two rides. Neil has kindly planned a century ride around the Purbecks for those wanting a long ride with a lunch stop and over 2000M of climbing.
As it will be a long day the depart will be 0830 from the usual meeting point in the main car park in Brookley Road, Brockenhurst. We will have a second rendezvous at Burley cricket club. We should pass Burley just after 0850 so please be there at 0845 if you want to join there.
Pace a little slower than recent group rides so I’d expect an average of around 26-27KmH based on the amount of climbing
Make sure you’ve got money for lunch and the Sandbanks Ferry. Lunch stop will be after about 88Km when we get to Lulworth.
For those wanting a shorter ride suggest using one of our winter routes for a loop around the forest
Meet at the main car park in Brookley Road Brockenhurst at 0850 for 0900 depart.
Out via Rhinefield, Bolderwood, cross the airfield at Ocknells Plain, Bramble Hill, Furzey, Newbridge, Bartley, Woodland, Ashurst, Colbury, Ipley Cross and Beaulieu.
Optional coffee stop at Steff’s Kitchen in Beaulieu or at the end in Brockenhurst.
Finish ride via Bucklers Hard, Norleywood, Pilley.
