A re-run of the very first easy ride. The intended route is to go out via St Albans Road and Prospect Lane to Rowlands Castle where there is a short section of optional track. Then on to Finchdean via Woodhouse Lane and through Littlegreen and 11s at Compton. The return route will be along the "B" road to Walderton, then Aldsworth and back to The Spring at Havant via Hollybush Lane.

About easy rides

Our easy rides are designed to be an introduction to club riding. You needn't be concerned about whether you can manage the pace or distance. The easy rides are leisurely and informal. They go at the pace of the slowest rider. We will not leave you behind. If necessary we will split the ride to ensure everyone enjoys it.

The ride is designed for people of average fitness and is open to everyone. There’s no charge for joining the ride. You’ll be riding for two to three hours with a break in the middle at a tea shop. We’ll be using dedicated cycle tracks and cycle lanes wherever possible. We’ll also be using country lanes and back streets.

Inevitably, though, you will be travelling in traffic for part of the way, so the ride is not suitable for people that are uncomfortable cycling on the road.

Typically we have around a dozen people on the ride.

The easy rides usually start at 9:30. There might be a longer ride starting at 9:15. Let people know you’re waiting for the short ride or you might get a longer trip than you expected!

Cycling is a great way to improve health and well-being, and you’ll find we're a friendly bunch. We’d love to see you.

This article describes what you should consider bringing with you.

  1. Hi, im interested in coming on the compton ride 17th May, can you give me an idea of route/distance and times etc.

    1. We'll probably go out via Rowlands Castle, Finchdean and Littlegreen. Then back via Walderton, a piece of singletrack, Westbourne then back to Havant.

      We'll aim to get back to Havant around lunchtime having had a decent elevenses break at Compton.

      We'll be riding for 2.5 to 3 hours at 10-12mph. You needn't worry about keeping up. It's not a fast group and we're happy to split the ride if necessary.

      We look forward to riding with you.
