Elevenses ride destination: Compton

This is a lovely ride and the weather is looking promising. However it will be quite a challenging ride as it is hilly and longer than we have been recently. Distances   -

  • Spring to elevenses 18 miles
  • Elevenses to lunch in Winchester 17 miles
  • Lunch to tea in Bishops Waltham 12 Miles
  • Bishops Waltham to Spring 15 miles
  • Total distance 62 miles

This ride was originally programmed for 28th March. We've swapped for the ride originally programmed for 18th April.

Mike Skiffins' current intention is to lead an alternative ride to Compton. He will review the destination on the day based on who turns up for the ride.

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.

  1. Looks like a perfect 100 km day out in somewhat unusual weather. Digging out the sun cream might be an idea ...
