Usual format for a winter ride this week. Meet at 0850 for 0900 depart from the main car park in Brookley Road, Brockenhurst. (I won’t be at the start as I’m helping Julie first thing but will aim to meet you at the top of Bolderwood so as not to be accused of hill avoidance!).
Out via Balmer Lawn to Hatchet Pond, past Beaulieu and onto Lyndhurst. Take Phil B’s shortcut through the garage and then onto Emery Down and up to Bolderwood. Across Ocknells Plain then Roger Penney Way, hopefully devoid of caravans this time of year and down to Fordingbridge. Up to Sandleheath and then turn back towards Alderholt. Then usual way back to Brock via Harbridge, Moyles Court, Red Shoot Bolderwood, Ornamental with coffee stop at the end after 85Km.
Probably back at Setts unless we need a bigger café.
Aiming to keep pace to around 26KmH this time of year.
