A short ride of 32 km Havant to Havant at a slowish pace, rewarded by elevenses in the Downland village of Compton. 400 m of climbing gives us some beautiful Downland views and makes this a hilly ride. A considerable distance off-road adds to the challenge.
The ride is best enjoyed on your new gravel bike with hydraulic brakes, low gears and fat tyres; but in reality any bike with sturdy tyres, low gears and good brakes will be fine. Riders will need to be confident riding some stony bridleways with occasional steep gradients (up and down).

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.
