Club Ride – Saturday 12th JuneBarry Wootten
After last week’s epic ride a more “normal” Saturday ride this week. Plan to revisit one of our regular routes that we’ve not used for a while as we were keeping rides very local. So, this week it’s a trip along the Chalke Valley and a mid-ride coffee stop at the Community Shop in Chalke Valley. Please be aware that café space is limited and may be reserved so eating on the green opposite the shop may be the best option.
Route is 106Km and can be found here: https://www.plotaroute.com/route/1581578?units=km
Those wanting a longer ride can then plan an extra loop at the end.
Both the standard ride at a probably 28KmH pace and the Piano group riding the same course at a slightly slower pace will be running.
Safety note: I rode most of this route this week and there are two places of severe subsidence on the left hand side of the road. So please take extra care between Sandleheath and Alderholt and descending Kent Lane towards Harbridge.
There were also roadworks in North Gorley this week so we may need to dismount to walk through the works (there is pedestrian access).
