The 21st December is the shortest day, so it's probably appropriate to do a short ride. We'll cycle from Rowlands Castle over to Buriton, then west via East Meon to West Meon where we'll stop for coffee at Cuppacheeno's. We can take solace in the thought that the Sun will be starting its slow journey back to the Northern Hemisphere soon. We'll return over Old Winchester Hill and Clanfield, appropriately passing the Rising Sun.

This ride starts and finishes in Rowlands Castle.

Meet Bumblebee café, Rowlands: 09.45
Depart Rowlands: 10.00
Arrive W.Meon: 11.30
Depart W.Meon: 12.10
Arrive Rowlands: 13.40 (before the Sun sets on the shortest day)

About Pop-up rides

We have certain days when we try to organise regular rides. However, individual ride leaders can create pop-up rides for any day and time.

The small size of some pop-up rides means we might be unable to split a ride if you get into difficulties. We will do all we can to escort you back to the start point, but please be prepared to navigate yourself home or to call for support from a partner, relative or friend.
