About Saturday and Wednesday rides

Rides from Havant with stops for elevenses, lunch and sometimes tea. Average speed is 11-12 mph; if you're slower, someone will wait for you.

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.

This article describes what you should consider bringing with you.

  1. please can I have information regarding the ride tomorrow 30th April. Will it be a hard ride as I have not done any real cycling for some time but want to get back into doing it.

    I am a member if the CTC and hope I will be able to join you tomorrow. If not next week.

    1. Trotton is one of our more distant elevenses stops. We'll probably be going over Harting Hill to get there. The ride will be a full day. You could go to elevenses and come back from there (someone will be able to go with you), but there's no escaping a steep hill on the way back.

      If you're undaunted, we'd be pleased to see you. Otherwise, next Wednesday's ride might be a better option for you.

      Either way, we look forward to riding with you.

      1. Many thanks for the info. I think I will chicken out this week as hills are not my forte, especially as I haven't done much cycling recently!
        I think I will come next week if that is ok. Do I just turn up in Havant?

        1. That's it. I can see you are a CTC member from the list I get from CTC National so no paperwork to do!

          We'll look forward to meeting you.

    2. As support for the leader of tomorrow's ride, I will be responsible for the group of more leisurely riders. Please ring me on 01243 378615 if you are still minded to come. You will be very welcome.
