Participation in the Paris to Hayling Virtual ride, requires cycling 180 miles (the nominal distance from Paris to Hayling) during the week of the cancelled Hayling Cycle ride.

This is the first of three rides - east, north and west of Havant - to meet that requirement.

The rides will all start in Havant and be over 50 miles each. The balance will be made up by cycling to the start and, if necessary, an extra loop or two on the final day.

We'll meet up in Havant and cycle to Warsash via Purbrook, Denmead, Soberton Heath, Wickham, Knowle, Titchfield and Hook.

Elevenses in Wickham (if not too busy). Toilet possibilities in Denmead, Wickham and Warsash. Lunch overlooking the Hamble.

From Warsash we'll come back via Hook, the off-road route to Hill Head and then along the coast to Gosport and the ferry, then along the pedestrianised Southsea promenade, Eastern Road and Farlington Marshes.

Toilet possibilities all along the coast.

If the weather is adverse, we'll slip the date to Monday 6th.

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.
