Start Point: Lovedean Tesco Express (Junction of Lovedean Lane and Milton Road)

This is a short 44km (28 mile) medium paced Saturday morning cafe ride, starting at Lovedean, riding out to the Issac Walton at East Meon for coffee and cake 😊.

The route (map above) allows for a few moderate climbs in the first half of the ride, through Chidden up onto Old Winchester Hill, before descending for a small loop through Warnford, returning via West Meon and the long flat run to East Meon.

After coffee at the Issac Walton pub, we’ll take the slightly easier undulating route back home through Ramsdean Lane to the outskirts of Petersfield, before one last climb on the Butser cutting, past the Queen Elizabeth Country Park back to the start.

About Saturday rides

Rides usually from Havant with stops for elevenses, lunch and sometimes tea. If you're unable to keep up or have a mechanical problem, someone will be available to help you - although we obviously cannot guarantee to solve all problems.

Riders are free to join and leave the ride at various points. Some ride directly to the elevenses stop.

Saturday rides are (usually) much smaller than Wednesday rides. As a result they offer fewer options for rides but more flexibility for routes and destinations.

If you want to ride with us but only to elevenses and need someone to help you with the route back, please let us know in advance of the ride so we can try to arrange something for you.
