The aim of this ride is to look at and identify interesting wild flowers and plants around Langstone harbour. Starting from Bedhampton we will cycle to Hayling Island. Beside the bridge there is a "top spot" wild flower to see. We'll go round Northney, then Daw Lane & West Town to catch the ferry to Eastney. (Single fare including cycle is £2.75.) We'll cycle down Ferry Road to the Coffee Cup on Eastney beach for lunch. Then we'll have a wander on Eastney's shingle beach to look for and identify interesting wild flowers and plants. Next we'll cycle up the Eastern road cycleway and continue on the cycleway beside Farlington Marshes. There are other wild flowers along the cycleways. Finally we'll return to Bedhampton, via Brockhampton Road. Total milage will be about 22, with several pauses. Those owning an "i-spy wild flowers" booklet may like to bring it AND a pen with them.

About Wednesday rides

Wednesday rides usually start 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.

Wednesday rides usually provide a range of options to riders as we'll try to arrange multiple rides with different paces, distance and degree of hilliness.

On Wednesdays it is likely that there will be several riders coming back to the Havant area after an elevenses stop - although they might not include a PCTC ride leader. If that is what you'd like to do, please consult the ride organiser before the day of the ride to ensure someone knows and is able to bring you back.
