From Bidbury we will ride up Portsdown Hill Road, then Southwick Road to Southwick village. Left at the church, then right into Common Lane, where we will pause to look for wildflowers. If you have an "i-spy wildflowers" booklet, you may like to bring it and a pen to record what we find. Then we'll carry on to Bishop's Waltham, via Newtown and Swanmore. There are several possible places to lunch in the town centre, so riders can make their own choice of venue. After an hour we'll meet up again in the central car park to cycle home via Swanmore, Newtown, then Denmead and Purbrook Heath back to Bidbury.
Expected arrival back at Bidbury is between 3 and 4pm.

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.
