Hidden Churches Variation - A leisurely-paced ride starting at 10:00 from near the Hilsea Lido bus stop rank. Route out is via Paulsgrove to Fareham Town Quay and west towards Ranvilles Lane, Crofton Old Church, Old Street, Hill Head (toilets). A short coastal stretch to the Airport cafe for coffee/lunch stop, continuing after to Rowner Church, Alver Valley, Stokes Bay and Alverstoke, back across Gosport Ferry (£4.70 senior), returning to Hilsea via the Mountbatten Centre. We use shared paths and tracks in places and avoid most main roads. Parts are not suitable for road bikes with narrow tyres and we will dismount for some short interconnecting bits along the route. Approx 26 miles. Return 14:45 ish.

About Wednesday rides

Wednesday rides usually start from Havant with stops for elevenses, lunch and sometimes tea. If you're unable to keep up or have a mechanical problem, someone will be available to help you - although we obviously cannot guarantee to solve all problems.

Wednesday rides usually provide a range of options to riders as we'll try to arrange multiple rides with different paces, distance and degree of hilliness.

On Wednesdays it is likely that there will be several riders coming back to the Havant area after an elevenses stop - although they might not include a PCTC ride leader. If that is what you'd like to do, please consult the ride organiser before the day of the ride to ensure someone knows and is able to bring you back.

This article describes what you should consider bringing with you on one of these rides.
