We will start at 9.15 a.m. from The Spring, Havant

Grade A – demanding ride

Distance from Havant return: about 63miles. Height gained: approximately 1,200 metres.

The ride takes us to South Harting, Elsted, Iping and Easebourne. We will climb over Bexley Hill to Lurgashall for coffee and then on to Upperton and Petworth. We will head south to Barlavington, over Duncton Down and then to East Dean and West Dean, where we will stop for lunch at the village shop. We will return via Lavant, Salthill Road, Woodmancote and Westbourne.

We will not enjoy the fine dining that we usually experience on Tuesday rides because most of the pubs on the route are not opening until 17th May, but we will be able to sit in the rear garden of the West Dean village shop, which serves soup, sandwiches and cakes.

About Pop-up rides

Find out about riding under COVID restrictions here.

Individual ride leaders can create pop-up rides for any day and time. People can then ask the ride leader for permission to join their ride. Leaders have complete discretion who they invite to join. It is vital that you do not join a pop-up ride unless you are invited by the ride leader, or your name appears in the booking list shown for each ride.

If you receive an invitation, please do your best to join the ride because you might be taking a place that could have been used by someone else. Unless you have a good reason for not turning up, you might find it difficult to join future rides.

The small size of some pop-up rides means we might be unable to split a ride if you get into difficulties. We will do all we can to escort you back to the start point, but please be prepared to navigate yourself home or to call for support from a partner, relative or friend.

If you are out on your bike and you see one of our pop-up rides, you can ask the ride leader if you can join provided it doesn't exceed the limit set by Government. Please respect the leader's decision if you are not allowed to join.
