Club Ride Saturday 25th March



Looks like a nice sunny day with a strong breeze to contend with. This week we’ll continue the two lap approach to the club ride to accommodate those who want to save a bit of energy for Sundays 2-Up TT and those that want a shorter ride.

Usual meet at 0850 for 0900 depart from the main car park in Brookley Road, Brockenhurst.

Out via Burley Road, Setthorns, Sway, Pilley, Norleywood, East Boldre, Beaulieu, Ipley Cross, Lyndhurst, Emery Down, Bolderwood and coffee and cake at Brockenhurst. That will be 60K for loop 1.  Julie’s been baking for Comic Relief so all welcome and there will be a tin for any donations you may wish to make for Comic Relief.

Second loop for those looking for more distance and more climbing back over Bolderwood and around Hyde for another 50K to make 110K in total and another 1000M climbing day.
