A great way to start the New Year is with a short dash around the South Downs. Starting from Rowlands we'll do a relativity short but hilly loop round to QECP where we'll celebrate the New Year with coffee and cake. We might go NE via South Harting, or NW through Clanfield and East Meon - we'll decide on the day.

This ride starts and finishes in Rowlands Castle.

Meet Bumblebee Café, RC: 09.45

About Saturday rides

Rides usually from Havant with stops for elevenses, lunch and sometimes tea. If you're unable to keep up or have a mechanical problem, someone will be available to help you - although we obviously cannot guarantee to solve all problems.

Riders are free to join and leave the ride at various points. Some ride directly to the elevenses stop.

Saturday rides are (usually) much smaller than Wednesday rides. As a result they offer fewer options for rides but more flexibility for routes and destinations.

If you want to ride with us but only to elevenses and need someone to help you with the route back, please let us know in advance of the ride so we can try to arrange something for you.

This article describes what you should consider bringing with you on one of these rides.
