A slightly shorter (77km/48m) if not hilly ride out with a flat(ish) return route. A comfortable ride for some or perhaps you’d like to try a hillier route but never felt comfortable on longer rides this might be for you!?
Heading out to Milland for an early Coffee if we feel the need, via South Harting. Heading north from there out through Liphook up a few steep hills, before heading to Bordon and Cafe Hogmore for the main break.
Returning through Blackmore and Greatham before crossing over the A3 into Liss Forest and finally Liss and the return leg past the country park home.

About faster rides
Our other rides go at the pace of the slowest rider or we will split the ride to accommodate a slower rider. 'Faster rides' go faster than other rides and people joining are expected to keep up.
We're not talking about professional or even 'club' riding speeds, but trying to ride at any speed faster than you can manage is an unpleasant experience.
If you want to join a faster ride, but uncertain whether you can keep up:
- Consider trying one or two of our other rides classed as A (Demanding) or B (Hilly) first. If you're able to keep up without difficulty that's a good indication you're ready for a faster ride. The chances are you'll be riding with other members familiar with faster rides that can help you with your assessment.
- In any case, contact the ride leader and discuss your experience to date with them. Bear in mind, however, that subjective assessments of average speed and cruising speed are notoriously unreliable even for those that routinely use cycle computers.
Before you join a faster ride, please review the route and prepare to make your own way back if you're struggling to keep up - and we all have bad days. We will not, however, intentionally drop slower riders; nor will we leave riders without first checking they are confident with getting back.
