Our last ride before the final challenge ride to Winchester. We'll be out for most of the day and we'll be using two ferries!

To start with we'll tackle a few lumps on our way to Botley. Nothing dramatic but enough to stretch the legs a bit. From Botley we'll make our way to Hamble where we'll take the 'Pink ferry' - a charming little ferry - across to Warsash. From here it's a flat ride along the coast, across to Portsmouth on the Gosport ferry (not so charming but, starting from the day before, bikes go free!). Then it's along the seafront, up Eastern Road and back to Havant via Farlington Marshes.

We'll stop for elevenses at Botley Garden Centre (excellent cakage). From there we have several choices of places to stop for some lunch.

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.
