Club Ride Saturday 6th August 2022

Meet at 0850 for a 0900 depart from the main car park in Brookley Road, Brockenhurst as usual. A slightly easier route than the last few weeks to give everybody a little recovery. This week it’s a 117Km loop to the east of the area. Coffee stop is planned for A Spot in the Woods in Woodlands where we haven’t been in a while. As usual, depending on numbers we’ll split into a number of smaller pelotons for our safety, reducing inconvenience to other road users and hopefully not all arriving at the coffee stop at the same time.

We pass through Beaulieu a couple of times, and I’ve been reliably informed there is a water fountain in the car park behind the garage so ride leaders please give everyone the opportunity to refill bottles as it looks like another hot ride.

There is an all weekend event at Beaulieu so extra vigilance required around there with the traffic.

Off Road Ride - Sunday 31st July

 Extra option this week from Catherine for those that prefer knobbly tyres and a different challenge:


Off road social ride - Sunday 31st July. Meet at 8:50am for a 9am start at the Brookley Road car park, Brockenhurst, as usual. The first few miles have some slightly challenging sections that may have to be taken gently if you are on a gravel bike but the rest of the ride will be the usual gravel tracks and tarmac. The ride is 31 miles; please ignore the weird bit of back-tracking shown on the map at the A35 crossing point. Plotaroute didn't want us to cross the road there and gave me an entirely unsuitable alternative. Refreshments will be taken at the Terrace Cafe in Brockenhurst, so bring sustenance for the ride if you feel you need it

Club Ride Saturday 30th July 2022


Meet at 0850 for a 0900 depart from the main car park in Brookley Road, Brockenhurst as usual. A 128Km hilly loop to the north of the area with a coffee stop at The Coffee Pot in Hyde at 68Km. Route can be found at:
