    Likewise my rural roads around Berks/hants/wilts..lovely and quiet

    Yeah the New forest will be heaving, honestly Goodwood on Nutty's known roads will be great.

    Nutty - I've not been following this thread as I can't make the weekend sadly. Just picked up on it though and I do have a bit if local knowledge, so if you want to pm me with your proposed route I'll happily take a gander and make suggestions if I can.

    Hope that might be of some help.

    the new forest is very pretty, but is often full of grockles, cyclists and other undesirables, not to mention the ponies, donkeys and deer. it is also pretty much covered by a blanket 40mph speed limit.

    i never ride there for fun, but there's not very much of the forest in JB's route.

    the ride towards salisbury is a good idea, then i'd go from wilton to shaftsbury on the A30. then tea and cake at compton abbas airfield. from there to verwood is nice and fast with little traffic. some of the best roads near me in fact.

    i'm not really familiar with the last bit back to weyhill.


    i don't don't recall having been on the roads from weyhill to goodwood either, so that sounds fine to me.

    Take a ride to Lawrence of Arabias house, Clouds hill, lovely empty roads if you know where you're going. From there ride through Moreton forest which is one minute away (all legal), and through the ford (one mile detour for those that don't want to), the other side of the ford is Moreton village, where lawrence is buried. Also nice place where you can stop for lunch, the old schoolhouse cafe.
    From there ride across purbeck and along the MOD section of coast road (always open on a weekend) and come out by corfe castle, from there ride to the swanage and then studland for the chain ferry across to Poole, then have a mad dash back to the hogroast.

    A nice day out.

    That's the conclusion I reached. We'll have a good day out.

    Snap to the above. Add to that I'm still on holiday in France so do not have access to my electronic maps.

    Agree with the New Forest. Meon Valley is good along with the run from Andover to Stockbridge and Stockbridge up to Farley Mount. Café / Tea stops at airfields are also cool. You have Popham / Lasham and another one I cant bloody remember. You could route north and pass through Watership Down / Lasham etc.

    You can route across to Goodwood using the Meon Valley. Routing past South Harting to Goodwood is a little hazy for me at the moment. Trundle hill provokes painful memories (Cycling)

    Cycled this a few times. Good route. Also remember a nice Roman road on the return leg (bloody headwind).

    And yes I've cycled a lot

    lost dog has no interest for me.

    too much like hard work and not enough riding the bike.


    ok, being honest, i don't really know what it is - treasure hunt? if so, not for me.

    Do participants have to find and photo each "flyer" ????
    Do you give out the maps?

    I'm sure I'm not the only one who is stumped by it......or maybe I am but never scared to put my hand up and ask if something is not clear
    .


    glad i'm not alone in not understanding it.
