One of two concurrent rides starting from Eastrop Park and heading towards Odiham. Both rides will have the same coffee shop destination but the rides will be of different speeds and distances.
This route is undulating and goes out through Old Basing, up Newnham Lane hill and onwards to Rotherwick, Dipley, and West Green. After crossing the A30 we will continue to Odiham via Winchfield.
The café stop is in Odiham where we shall join riders from the alternative group for a social gathering. After the café stop both groups will take the same route back to Eastrop Park via Greywell.
This ride is a total distance of 23 miles with a café stop after 17 miles. We will be riding at an average of 10 mph which is a bit faster than our usual Tuesday pace. (This means that some flatter sections will be faster than this and some uphill sections are likely to be a little slower.) NB There will be fewer and shorter recovery stops than we currently have on Tuesday café rides.
Please ensure that you arrive in time to START the ride at 9:45 with time before that for a chat about the route. If you are new to Breeze, please arrive about 10 minutes early so we can guide you through a bike check.
Prior to riding, ensure your tyres are well inflated and your brakes/gears are in good working order.
• Bring a spare inner tube that fits your wheels, tyre levers and pump (plus puncture repair kit if you have one)
• You’ll need a bike lock at the café (and money!)
• Please wear clothing appropriate for the weather (layers work well when it’s cooler and waterproofs can help with the windchill as well as the rain)
• Please make sure you have lights if the weather is dull or misty
Look forward to seeing you. Any queries - use the Conversation or Message facilities on here.
