Club Ride – 8th June 2024

Meet at 0850 for an 0900 depart from the main car park in Brookley Road, Brockenhurst as usual.

With the nation commemorating the D-Day anniversary in many ways this week the club ride will pay its own respects by passing by the four main airfields that were used in the New Forest. This week’s club ride is a 116Km ride within the forest. Route can be downloaded from here:

Coffee stop planned at the Minstead Community Shop at around 64Km. Please note that after our last visit anyone wanting to borrow their cushion will have to fight Smithy for it!

Route will take us west to the Holmsley South airfield and a photo opportunity of the memorial. Before passing the site of the Ibsley airfield we will be using slightly busier roads than usual around Bransgore as I saw a load of roadworks in the Bockhampton area this week. When we get to Poulner take extra care on the road through to the Alice Lisle as the road surface through there is atrocious.

After Ibsley we will pass along the site of the Stoney Cross airfield before heading for coffee. Our last airfield will be Beaulieu before heading back to Brock.
