Club Ride Saturday 8th April 2023Barry Wootten
At last a dry Saturday so expect a return from the NFCC hydophobes! Usual meet at 0850 for a 0900 depart from the main car park in Brookley Road, Brockenhurst where we will split the group into smaller pelotons as appropriate. This is a must when we head west from Coombe Biussett so we may split the group further there as usual. As it’s a Bank Holiday and likely to be very busy in the forest we’ll take the route north and head up to the Chalke Valley.
Total distance 116Km
Coffee stop planned at halfway at the ever popular community café in Broad Chalke which will precede a chain breaking climb up to Sixpenny Handley followed by a descent where this time we hope that Smithy doesn’t end up in the hedge again!
Back to the forest and the option to add another loop for those that think a century ride is the order of the day.
