We'll be visiting Pat at lunchtime for some New Year's refreshment. Pat writes:
Unlike last year I am back at home and will happily accept visitors at lunch on New Years Day. I will be serving soup and a roll but if anyone cares to supplement it I will provide a plate!
The current forecast for the New Year’s Day ride is dire. Unless there is a significant improvement early tomorrow the ride is cancelled. I'll submit a further update in the unlikely event the ride is back on. However, Pat is happy to host Soup-‘n-rolls at lunch time and people are welcome at her home any time after midday. There is a reasonable amount of car parking in and around the house. It will help catering if you can let Pat know if you are coming to lunch – by whatever means of transport.
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.
