The ride will go to Goodwood for elevenses as a normal Saturday ride. From there we will go into Chichester to join the Sustrans National Cycle Route 20th anniversary celebration event in Sherborne road park Chichester and join in their ride along Centurion Way for a picnic lunch. See http://www.sustrans.org.uk/events/celebrating-cycling-chichester
From there we will return on a short or long route to be agreed on the day.
As a group of committed cyclists it would be good to support this event put on by Sustrans who have done so much good work in creating many of the routes that we use regularly. It should also be fun! The ride up Centurion Way will be leisurely but we can take a longer route back if riders wish to do so.
About Saturday and Wednesday rides
Rides from Havant with stops for elevenses, lunch and sometimes tea. Average speed is 11-
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.
