Having seen the weather forecast for this Wednesday. I think it prudent to cancel the coastal ride to Stokes Bay / Hill Head as they are anticipating winds of 25-40 knots, with some periods of rain, so not the best conditions for being exposed to the coast.
However, I will still be at the Spring Centre at 9.15am, for any brave soul who wishes a ride. I plan to see who turns up and do an inland ride: Finchdean, Compton and on to West Dean for coffee and then play it by ear.
About Saturday and Wednesday rides
Rides from Havant with stops for elevenses, lunch and sometimes tea. Average speed is 11-
If you'd prefer not to do the full day ride, you're welcome to join us as far as the elevenses stop and come back from there. Please make sure the ride leader knows that's what you intend to do so we can make sure someone is available to come back with you.
Larger rides split into multiple groups:
- A fast group that takes a longer and/or hillier route to the elevenses stop
- The rest of the main ride which takes a more direct route to the elevenses stop
- An elevenses ride comprised of riders going only to elevenses; the elevenses ride will have its own ride leader and might go to a different destination if the route to the main elevenses destination is long and/or hilly
The rides are informal and riders are free to join and leave the ride at various points. Some ride directly to the elevenses stop.
