This is the ride originally programmed for May 29th.
Note that the elevenses destination has changed from Liss to the Sustainability Centre.
This is a long and hilly ride over 70 miles and numerous steep climbs. It will require a steady and even pace so as to not to burn ourselves out and enjoy the routes that we don frequent very often.
The route after coffee is: East Meon, Privet, West Tisted, Four Marks, Medstead, Lasham. Return: Wields, Bighton, Bramdean, Corhampton Golf Course, Droxford to Havant.
I suspect not many will want to continue to Lasham and I am looking for volunteers to lead the group after coffee to more suited venues.
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.
