Spring 150 km and Spring 75 km: We have devised two new routes for our next open event on Sunday 26th April 2015 starting and finishing at the King Charles PH in Lovedon Lane, Springvale, SO23 7NU.
Both rides start at 8 am and coffee will be available before the ride.
There is no charge to enter but for insurance reasons, riders must complete an entry.
The two routes are identical as far as East Woodhay. The short route then heads west and south to Faccombe and Hurstbourne Tarrant (Coffee shop: The Tea Cosy) and then down the Bourne Valley to Longparish and back to Springvale via Barton Stacey.
After the split, the longer route heads north and along the Lambourn Valley before it returns over the Lambourn Downs to Aldbourne and Hungerford (Tutti Pole for coffee or lunch). It’s then up and over the North Hampshire Downs followed by a long downhill to Weyhill before heading west to Grateley and then back to Springvale via King’s Somborne.
The pub serves food until 4 pm but if you want to guarantee a table inside between 12.00 please phone in advance (01962 881626).
HELP NEEDED AT FINISH
We also need help at the finish. To cover both events, we need to man the finish between 11 am and 5.30 pm. We have one volunteer for part of this period. If you can help for any of that period, please email Sue Coles as soon as possible.
