Club Ride – Saturday 10th November

Weather forecast for this week doesn’t look too good. The high winds should have passed by Saturday morning but looks like a day for waterproofs, mudguards and lights. So, plan to keep it shortish and relatively local this week so we can cut short if the weather is too inclement.
Meet at usual place in the main car park in Brookley Road, Brockenhurst at 0850 for a 0900 depart. Out via Balmer Lawn to Hatchet Pond. First loop around East Boldre, Sowley, Bucklers Hard. Second loop around Lepe. Then back to East Boldre, Norleywood, Pilley and coffee stop at Mabel’s at Shallowmead Nursery in Boldre Lane. Then either back to Brock via Sway and Setthorns or add a longer return via Burley.
