As the pink ferry doesnt run weekdays until March, I have moved date of this ride 6 days forward. A Moderate paced ride with no strenuos climbs to Southampton via Botley garden centre for elevenses.
Lunch in Woolston at the new Mettricks cafe. Return via Southampton water, to the pink ferry at Warsash (cash only), then along the cycle ways to the Gosport ferry. Return to Havant via the Eastern rd cycleway or Hayling ferry. Distance from Purbrook to Havant about 45 miles.
Some tracks to negotiate after Southampton, so narrow tyres may not be suitable.

About Pop-up rides

We have certain days when we try to organise regular rides. However, individual ride leaders can create pop-up rides for any day and time.

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.
