Sorry, you cannot email this ride's leader/event organiser directly. Instead you can use our general enquiry form.

As yet, we don’t have a leader for this ride.  If someone volunteers to lead the ride, we will update this page with the coffee and lunch stops.

Otherwise, those attending at the Spring will decide a leader and destination.  There might be multiple destinations if the group decides that’s appropriate.

About Saturday and Wednesday rides

Rides from Havant with stops for elevenses, lunch and sometimes tea. Average speed is 11-12 mph; if you're slower, someone will wait for you.

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.

This article describes what you should consider bringing with you.

  1. We are renting a holiday cottage ----Hayling Island.

    There are definitely x3 of us for any cycling trip. We love cycling and any place we go we hire or bring our bikes. We are fairly confident cyclist though we do enjoy around trips of appox. 12 --to 16 miles round trips. We have done a long cycle route of 20 miles. But we are not super fit, and dont enjoy the intense club cycling. We enjoy leisurely ride to look at the surroundings with a bit of pace.

    I am aware this may not suit your rides. Sorry to be a bother. But we are so looking forward to cycling around Hayling Island.

    I look forward to hearing from you,

    1. I'd normally suggest starting with one of our easy rides. Our next easy ride is on July 9th - if you're around then, you're very welcome to join us. You'd also be welcome to join any of our regular rides, but even a trip to elevenses and back is likely to be a little further than you are used to.

      We did a very nice easy ride around the Isle of Wight yesterday. I've uploaded the track we took and added some ride notes if you are interested. There's an easy route to the ferry terminal via the Hayling Ferry and a cycle path along the Southsea sea front.

      If you're just looking for some ideas for cycling around Hayling, you can download a copy of the Cycle Hayling map and the Billy Trail treasure hunt. There's also links to other local cycling maps on this page.

      I hope you enjoy your visit to Hayling. Use this form to get back to me if you need any more information.
