Popley Fields Community Centre Carpenters Down Popley Basingstoke Hampshire
This ride starts off on the cycle lanes from Popley up towards Rooksdown, at Rooksdown we then go onto an off road track through the trees, across the A340, care needed here to cross, then on minor roads through to Sherbourne St John back into the top of Basing Woods to finish back at Popley Fields Community Centre.
An ideal route for cyclists to try off roading, mountain bike or hybrid ideal. One slight hill through Sherbourne st John. Approx 8 miles in total and hopefully we might get to see some wildlife on the way round.
Newcomers to Breeze rides are very welcome. It's a good idea to bring some water and you may also want to bring a snack. Dress appropriately for the weather: in cool weather it's good to wear lots of thin layers, so you can add/remove them as needed; a rain jacket is a good idea too! Might also want to make sure you have some lights on your bike just incase now as the weather is on the change.
Wearing a helmet is advisable; if you don’t have one please do not to worry you can still take part. If you enjoy the bike ride and would like to come again perhaps you could look to buy one then
Hope to see you there
