From Widley we will head through Fareham & Whitley, crossing the Hamble at Swanwick and into Old Bursledon. We'll use mainly back lanes and cut throughs to travel through Bursledon, Hamble and the Royal Victoria Country Park, passing a masoleum and Danni Kings Gold Post Box on our way. Elevenses will be at the Victoria Perk Cafe in Netley Abbey.

After coffee (& cake) we'll take a back route out of Netley Abbey and Bursledon to the top of Hedge End and into Manor Farm Country Park to get to Botley, then head toward Lower Upham and West Meon. First choice for lunch will be the cafe at West Meon, but if this is not open we will head on to one the pubs in East Meon.

Returning to Widley we will have cover just over 100Km equally divided between refreshment stops, and climbed a modest 850m.

About Tuesday rides

The Tuesday rides are typically 60-70 miles at a moderately fast pace while maintaining the social nature of the Saturday and Wednesday rides. The rides will start at locations closer to people coming from the west side of our area.
