This will be a short, flat ride to note newly blossoming wild flowers along the Farlington Marshes cycleway and at Northney, Hayling Island. We will look for pyramidal orchids, selfheal, waterlilies and other interesting wild flowers. There will be several pauses to admire the wildflowers and, perhaps, to take photos. We will ride from Bidbury to the N end of Eastern road, then to Langstone and Woodgaston Road, Northney. After that we will retrace to The Salt Shack cafe, on Hayling. (www.saltshackcafe.co.uk) where we will have late 11ses, or lunch. Then we will return to Bidbury, having ridden a total of about 15 miles. Those with an "i-spy wildflowers" book may collect over 100 points for new spots!!

The ride will be repeated on Wednesday 7th July.

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.
