John Blaber will be assisting me as part of his ride leader induction.
Please note that I have changed 11's to Sustainabilty Centre, due to temporary nature of QEP cafe, and no where suitable to keep bikes.
Note also ride grade changed to 'hilly'.
Please note that I have changed lunch stop to Trotton as thought more suited to time of year than Milland.
Havant to Sust Ctre via Rowlands Castle, Chalton, Clanfield: 13 miles.
Sust Ctre to Trotton via Oxenbourne, Buriton, West Harting , Nyewood, Terwick, Borden Wood: 18 miles. This is same route as my ride April last year, except 11's and lunch slightly different.
Trotton to Havant via Elsted, Harting : 16 miles.
Overall 47 miles (42 previously).
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.
