Club Ride – 11th June 2022Barry Wootten
Meet at 0750 for an 0800 start
Back for the second year by popular demand, the NFCC D-Day Tour of the Airfields returns with a few improvements over the inaugural ride last year.
The plan for this year is to split the ride into two stages, both starting and finishing in Brock with checkpoints for riders to join/exit as they feel suitable.
This year’s route will stick to the WWII airfields and locations within the forest boundary and avoid the sections on the busy roads from last year to get to Hurn Airport. Also excluded this year is the Marshalling Yard at Marchwood, again with safety in mind due to the roads around the location.
Everyone will be pleased to hear Chief Soigneur Julie Wootten will be handling supplies with mid and end-of-ride coffee stops planned at Chez Wootton in Brockenhurst, and it would be great if we can get an indication of numbers by responding to this event.
An up-to-date route and plan for timings etc. can be found on the club website: https://www.newforestcc.co.uk/dday/
