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 63 mile (101km) 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 and Beaulieau then skirts past Brockenhurst and along the ornamental drives then loops back round past Cadnum to Lyndhurst. The ride isn't too hilly and will be done at an average 3* pace and covers a good variety of the beautiful New Forest countryside.
We will have a cafe stop in Beaulieu at The Old Bakehouse Tea Rooms and then a lunch stop at The Royal Oak in Fritham.
We can then all meet up for an evening meal in Lyndhurst at La Pergola, an Italian restaurant near the starting place, which we will book beforehand.

The starting place for both days is the Bolton's Bench car park on the B3056 Lyndhurst to Beaulieu road. When approaching from Lyndhurst village (on the A35 Southampton Road) the B3056 is on the right hand side, opposite the fire station. The car park is immediately on the left. La Pergola is on the A35 just a bit further on, on the left hand side. It has a large car park.

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.

We will set up a Whatsapp group to help co-ordinate everything nearer the time. Jo has contact details for nearly everyone but please could you ensure you have downloaded Whatsapp onto your phone.

Please note the ride is showing as 115km on the map but that is because of a mapping error I have made and now can't undo. It is only 101km and we will finish where we started.

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

New Forest Weekend part 2 3* Add to Calendar
Contact:
Jo Little - 07900295322
Start Time:
9:00 am
Start Location:
Lyndhurst
Description:
A 33 mile (53km) 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 at Bolton's Bench car park in Lyndhurst. This time we'll approach Beaulieu from a different direction and then go across the Heath to Brockenhurst and towards Burley, where we'll have a cafe stop, before re-visiting Bolderwood Ornamental drive and then returning to Lyndhurst.
The ride should finish about 12.30pm, allowing plenty of time to return home before the rush hour (hopefully!).

Today's ride is lumpier than yesterdays. There are no big climbs but it is a fairly constant up and down for much of the ride. As always we'll take it at a steady pace and regroup whenever necessary.


Again, please let Eddie or Jo know if you are interested as the numbers for this days ride are also limited to 12 riders.
