The idea is that we ride out with a target of catching the Hayling Ferry leaving Eastney at 2.30 to get to the Birthday bash.

That gives us time to visit a supermarket on Hayling (Tesco, Sainsbury, Co-op all available) to stock up for the party.

Alternatively, we'll be going past my house so let me know (ideally before Thursday 26th) and I can buy stuff in for you to collect.

We'll go out to the new café at Silversprings for elevenses going round the back of Portsdown Hill and through Knowle.

From there we'll drop down to Titchfield Haven and along the coast to catch the Gosport Ferry.

We can then stop for a snack in Southsea giving us enough time to catch the Hayling ferry. I've shown the Pavilion café but we have several options.

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.

The rides are often shown as 'informal' meaning there is no prescribed ride leader. Unless weather is particularly adverse, however, they always go ahead at the stated time and start point. We try to keep to the suggested elevenses destination to allow for people who want to ride directly there.

The lunch destination does change occasionally but we will always take views of riders into account. In particular, if you join a ride because you think you can manage the distance/hilliness, we would not substitute an alternative if it meant you couldn't join the ride.

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