Club Rides – Saturday 17th September


This weeks plan as follows:
Meet at Brookley Road car park in Brockenhurst at 0850 for 0900 depart.
If there are sufficient numbers split into A and B rides.
Both rides out via Sway Road, Pitmore Lane, Lymington, past the ferry terminal, East End, East Boldre, St Leonards, Bucklers Hard, back to East Boldre, Hatchet Pond. Then the B ride head into Beaulieu for coffee stop at Steph’s Kitchen in the garden centre after 36K and the A ride does an extra loop around Beaulieu Road and North Road and hopefully both rides meet up at the cafĂ©.
Then both rides head back up North Road, Beaulieu Road, Lyndhurst, Emery Down, Bolderwood and down the hill to the A35.
Then option for ride back to Brock along Ornamental Drive, that should make the A ride 79K and B ride 70K or option to add another 17K by returning via Burley, Mill Lane, Holmsley, Wilverley, Hinches Lea.
A ride pace circa 29KMH
B ride pace depending on who is out
Hope to see a good turnout for both rides

Club Ride Saturday 10th September



Forecast this week for a few showers so have prepared routes that can be cut short if required.
Plan to meet at 0850 in the main car park in Brookley Road, Brockenhurst as usual for 0900 depart.
Out via Burley Road, Setthorns, Pitmore Lane, Pilley, East Boldre, Beaulieu, Hill Top, Exbury, Lepe and out to the tea room in Dibden Purlieu at around 50K. Good idea to take a small lock for the tea room as the bikes are a little out of view.
Back via Roman Road to Tesco’s and then to Ipley Cross. Option to cut short to Brock from here or stick to plan and continue to Colbury, Ashurst, Woodlands, Bartley, Minstead, Acres Down, Bolderwood and back to Brock for 93K.
Hopefully they’ll be riders out for both A and B rides. A pace circa 28KMH, B ride as per the riders who are out.

I won’t be out this week but will be back next week.

Have a good ride

Club Rides

We've had a number of enquiries from new and prospective members about club rides and a number are looking for a ride a bit slower than the current ride. Are there others that would like a similar ride? If so please let me know and we might re-start doing the A and B rides again if there's demand. Regards Barry

Club Ride – 27th August 2016


This weeks club ride as follows:
Meet at 0850 for 0900 depart from the main car park in Brookley Road, Brockenhurst (behind Sainsburys).
Bit shorter than the usual summer rides as tomorrow forecast for showers but opportunities to tag extra loops on for those that wish and option to miss out the Burley loop for those that want a slightly shorter (80K) ride. Plan for 92K, out via Burley Road, Setthorns, Pitmore Lane, Pilley, Norleywood, East End, Sowley, Bucklers Hard, Beaulieu, Colbury, Ashurst, Woodlands,  Newbridge, Furzey, Newbridge, Nomansland. Back via Ocknells Plain, Bolderwood and then either round the chain gang loop to Burley or direct to Brock.
No obvious mid ride coffee stop. So either Burley or Brock on the way back look like the best options.
Pace 27-28KMH depending on who’s riding.
