We originally planned to organise two final Gold Challenge rides to Winchester, but we decided to do just one, last Sunday.

Instead, we're finding another cathedral: Arundel via Aldingbourne. We'll be going out on the flatter route through Walberton and Binsted. There is a short stretch of very rough stuff on Binsted Lane which you might have to push. It's followed by a longer stretch of rough stuff that you can ride on skinny tyres. We'll come back via Ford, Oving and Chichester.

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.
