Joy Forrow has stepped forward to lead this ride - thanks, Joy. Note the changes to the elevenses and lunch destinations.
I'm taking the opportunity of long summer days to get further into some beautiful parts of West Sussex. Although not as long as last week's ride it has the same amount of climbing.
Distances are - Spring to Trotton 17 miles, Trotton to Petworth 16 miles and hilly, Petworth to Spring 27 miles, total 60 miles. Tea stop will be discussed on the day but West Dean post office is looking a good option.
I recce'd the route today (Sunday) and it is lovely!
About Saturday and Wednesday rides
Rides from Havant with stops for elevenses, lunch and sometimes tea. Average speed is 11-
If you'd prefer not to do the full day ride, you're welcome to join us as far as the elevenses stop and come back from there. Please make sure the ride leader knows that's what you intend to do so we can make sure someone is available to come back with you.
Larger rides split into multiple groups:
- A fast group that takes a longer and/or hillier route to the elevenses stop
- The rest of the main ride which takes a more direct route to the elevenses stop
- An elevenses ride comprised of riders going only to elevenses; the elevenses ride will have its own ride leader and might go to a different destination if the route to the main elevenses destination is long and/or hilly
The rides are informal and riders are free to join and leave the ride at various points. Some ride directly to the elevenses stop.
