The Bronze challenge is a ride from Havant to Portsmouth - via Portsmouth Cathedral - and back.
We'll go out via Farlington Marshes and Hilsea Lines to Hilsea Lido, then down the West side of Portsea Island, round Portsmouth to Southsea and our coffee stop: The Tenth Hole.
We'll then continue along the promenade, back up Eastern Road via St James Hospital and the return through Farlington Marshes again.
It's a flat route about 6 miles longer than Bronze 2 and Bronze 3.
About Cathedral Challenge rides
We're running a series of rides for people new to group riding or who haven't cycled for a while. They start with a short, 'get to know you' ride that includes a free bike check and progress through longer distances, tackling a series of challenges on the way:
- Bronze: Havant to Portsmouth cathedral and back
- Silver: Chichester cathedral and back
- Gold: Winchester cathedral and back
There's more detail and a registration form here.
Note that the Cathedral rides listed here (apart from the challenge rides to Portsmouth, Chichester and Winchester) are subject to change and adaptation as we learn more about the challenge riders.
