Breeze Bike Rides in Basingstoke and Deane
Here is the suggested route but happy to amend slightly depending on the group. We will aim to go longer/faster later in the summer.
This is mainly an on-road ride but starts on the cycle path through Eastrop onto Old Basing, out towards Greywell, and back through Upton Gray and past Tunworth - it comes back into Eastrop from the cycle path through War Memorial Park to spin the legs out. It's really for road bikes and hybrids and will be around 13 miles. There is a longer option depending on the group but we'll aim for 13 and steady pace not road racing/riding but road bikes out for a social one welcome! There are some rolling hills, no mountains, and we wait at the top for the last rider, go at your own pace. It's 2 miles short than the April Wed road rides but a bit hillier so that makes up for it.
This route or a variation thereof. If you are all quick, we can extend!
North Hants road club have some good general guidelines about what to bring and how to ride on the road http://www.nhrc.co.uk/Club_Runs_Meetings.html - see 'club run briefing notes' - which are mostly common sense and you need to be responsible for yourself. Also Basingstoke Tri Club have some good do's and don't's. http://www.basingstoketrisquad.co.uk/group-riding/
We should not need lights but always a good idea to have them in case.
Look forward to seeing you there! Emergency number for the day 07876 351561.
