Elevenses at Liss Triangle Centre.

Since last year I have changed the return route so that its totally different from the outgoing route. We will return via Liphook and have tea at Trotton. It is quite a hilly ride particularly after lunch. Total distance to and from the Spring - 66 miles, 828 metres of ascent.

Here's hoping for a lovely summers day!

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.

  1. Time for a philosophical interlude ... what's the difference between a 'hilly ride' and a 'ride with hills'?

    1. At my previous Cycling Club, there were two members called Hill one Arthur and one Brian and a third member called Brian Hills. There was no confusion with a 'hiily ride' since all rides were considered 'hilly' and a 'ride with hills' would be referring to the members with 3 possibilities:

      1 A ride with anyone called Hill but not Hills.

      2 A ride with anyone called Hills but not Hill

      3 If the 'ride with hills' was not more specific. a ride with anyone called Hill or Hills

  2. A hilly ride is one that I would prefer not to tackle, whereas a ride with hills is basically flattish with occasional lumpy bits.
    Like the difference between whole meal and granary bread.
