The New Forest in Spring - 80 km
5 people attending
7 places left
A road bike or similar is essential for this event. We will head north from Brockenhurst and head uphill through the New Forest. Heading west to Redlynch, we'll then head south over undulating hills to Ringwood, for a sublime ride along the flat to Bransgore and then Brockenhurst.
Expect bluebells, and ponies.
This is the regular ride we do each year, at almost the same time of year. It is the harder of 2 New Forest rides in Colin Dennis' '20 Classic Sportive Rides in South East England'.
Post Ride Social
As this ride is running concurrently with the Heart of the New Forest walk, we'll be sharing the same train to Brockenhurst and will endeavour to meet up again at a bar in Brockenhurst before heading home.
