Club Ride Saturday 29th April



After the trips out of the forest recently this week back to a two lap forest ride as there are some riders doing a TT on Sunday so this will give the option of a shorter ride.

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

Lap 1 out via Burley Road and a familiar loop around Lepe and Calshot and back for coffee stop at Rosie Lea’s in Setley Ridge after 73Km.

Lap 2 for those wanting a longer ride Burley, Braggers, Hyde and back via Red Shoot and Bolderwood for a total of 133Km.

Pace 27-28KnH depending on who’s out and who’s doing the work on the front.

Then we can do a second stop if required at the garden centre in Cranbourne or a quick provisions grab at the CoOp in Alderholt if anybody needs a top up.

Club Ride – Saturday 8th April



Spring weather at last so probably see a lot of bare legs that have been invisible since October this week. As there are Wiggle rides on both days this weekend plan to take the club ride away from the masses and keep off the roads being used by the sportive. This will mean using some of the route we’ve got planned for next weeks Shastfsbury Century but should mean a quieter ride.

Usual meet at 0850 for 0900 depart from the main car park in Brookley Road, Brockenhurst. Out via Rhinefield, Bolderwood. The loose chippings between Bolderwood and Milkham shouldn’t be an issue by tomorrow. I went through there Wednesday and they’re pretty well rolled in.

For those meeting at the end of the airfield road at Milkham should be passing there around 0930.

Onwards via Red Shoot, Moyles Court, Harbridge, Alderholt, Sandleheath, Rockbourne,
Coombe Bissett and along the Chalke Valley to Broad Chalke. There we’ll stop for coffee at the Community Shop before returning via Martin, Sandleheath and the same route we went out on.

Total distance 177K and another ride with over 1000M of climbing. Expect pace to be around 27-28KMH depending on who’s out, the weather and who does a turn on the front!
Look forward to seeing a strong turnout for the spring weather.
