It's the time of year when the South Downs are at their finest. The ground is dry and the sun is shining. Great days for off-road cycling.

Essentially, we'll follow the South Downs Way to Winchester. A significant part of the ride will be off-road, so you need a mountain bike or a bike capable of dealing with rough terrain.

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.
