Club Ride 9th December 2023


At last, a chance of a club ride this week. Forecast not great but after the last three weeks I’ll take it. Looks like it will be wet and windy so it will be winter ride protocol. This means a slightly lower pace to stop riders getting hot and sweaty and then getting very cold. I suspect riders will be naturally a bit slower after the lack of riding for most of us over the last few weeks anyway. Ride is just 72Km around the east of the region with no planned stop. For those that want a coffee the core ride will finish at Boost in Brockenhurst where there is a coffee and cake van, bike racks and indoor seating where wet riders will not be frowned upon.

Route is here:

Option at the coffee stop to plan some additional mileage for those that want as the afternoon forecast looks a lot better.

Mudguards please. Roads are going to be very wet and it’s no fun following riders with no or inadequate mudguards so please show some respect to your fellow riders.

Sunday Club Ride 3rd December 2023.

Meet as usual in Brookley Rd Car park at 8.50 for a 9.00 A.M start.
This week's route downloadable here:
Finish at Setley Ridge cafe for vittles as per..
Forecast keeps chaning for Sunday but the possibilty of sleet is hanging around. Should be safe for riding if a little high on the Misery index.
After making my glorious return last weekend I shall once again be absent this Sunday as an invitation to a warm party in London with free drinks and grub just pipped-in ahead of the early morning wake-up call and a couple of hours with frostbite. Hope to see another surprisingly good turnout.

Apologies to all but the weather forecast this Saturday is not conducive to safe group riding so unfortunately no club ride planned this week. Stay safe and hope to be back to normal next week.

Club Rides Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th November

Apologies to all but the weather has defeated plans for this weekend.

Saturday looks like heavy rain all morning and definitely not fun to be out.

Sunday there are strong winds forecast that make a peloton ride unsafe.

Very annoying to be writing this on a sunny Friday that looks like a great day for a ride.

Stay safe and hope for better next weekend.
