This is a ride I planned to lead after the last lock-down, but had to drop out due to a pulled muscle.

We'll start in Havant and stop for a picnic elevenses at the car park at the top of Butser Hill. Unless we decide otherwise as a group, we'll stop for lunch in Petersfield.

I'll be self-catering.

It's a hard one to classify because there's a long hill up to the top of Butser but the maximum gradient is 6%. Coming back over the Butser Cutting cycle path has much bigger gradients but most riders manage it without a problem.

So, yes, there are hills (and a steep descent from the top of Butser) but nothing dreadful.

Bookings for this ride/event

Pop-up rides are invitation-only. We are operating under Government guidelines which dictate we must control the size of our rides. Do not attend a ride unless your name appears below or you have received an invite from the ride leader. You cannot assume that you are eligible to join a ride just because you asked to be added.

This ride cannot exceed 6 riders (including the ride leader).

This ride is currently full but we encourage you to ask to join the wait list. That will let the ride leader:

  • Find out the demand for that type of ride
  • Nominate you as a replacement if someone drops out
  • Arrange to split the ride if there is sufficient demand

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.
