NFCC Club Ride – Saturday 31st October – OFF ROADBarry Wootton
Weather forecast again this week is for high winds so not practical for a peloton type ride on the road. So again, this week will be an off-road ride. Ride is suitable for cross / gravel bikes as well as MTB’s and will be keeping to marked paths in the forest.
Meet at 0850 for an 0900 depart in Brockenhurst. No change to the Covid protocols so please arrive on time so we can get into groups of 6 or fewer.
Forecast for Sunday does not bode well either so if there are riders who normally ride Sunday who want to join the Saturday ride we can form another group to accommodate those.
Route has been kept a bit shorter than usual as forecast is for rain as well.
After last weeks mechanicals please take special care through the ford at Acres Down where we had multiple punctures from a nasty hidden pothole.
Coffee stop at the community shop in Minstead. Please remember face coverings as it is a shop not a café so face coverings are mandatory.
