New Forest Weekend part 1 3* Add to Calendar
Contact:
Eddie Little - [javascript protected email address]
Start Time:
9:30 am
Start Location:
Lyndhurst
Description:
A 96km ride in the rolling New Forest countryside.

This is day 1 of a two day visit to the New Forest. We are making it a weekend away and are staying in Lyndhurst from Friday to Sunday. It would be possible, however, to travel down early on Saturday and just treat it as a day ride.

The ride starts in Lyndhurst and visits Lepe, Beaulieau, Bucklers Hard (where we'll have a cafe stop) then skirts past Brockenhurst and along the ornamental drives then loops back round past Cadnum to Lyndhurst. A further cafe stop will be included for a lunch break. The ride isn't too hilly but will be done at 3* pace and covers a good variety of the beautiful New Forest countryside.
Hopefully we can then all meet up for an evening meal in Lyndhurst.

Lyndhurst has several small hotels, including the Ormonde House Hotel and The Rufus House. There are also some B&B's. We have booked The Rufus House for when we stay in May, but the area is popular so it would be best to book quickly.

We are limiting both days to 12 riders, as any more is too much on these roads. Please contact either Eddie or Jo if you would like to put your name down.
There might be slight changes to the route once we have done a test ride in March.

Sunset: 8:45pm   Twilight Ends: 9:25pm

Start Location:
Lyndhurst
Description:
A 51km ride in the rolling New Forest countryside.

Day 2 of the New Forest weekend. Once we have breakfasted we will meet up for a half day ride, again starting in Lyndhurst. This time we'll approach Beaulieu from a different direction and then go across the Heath to Brockenhurst, then past Sway and Burley before returning to Lyndhurst.

Details of where we will meet up and possible cafe stops will be added once we have done our reconnaissance ride in March.
Again, please let Eddie or Jo know if you are interested as the numbers for this days ride are also limited to 12 riders.

Sunset: 8:46pm   Twilight Ends: 9:27pm
