This Saturday there is heavier rain forecast first thing, however this looks to be improving somewhat by mid morning, so we are offering a couple of slightly shorter rides meeting at the later time of 10am. Its still likely to be wet, so dress appropriately and use mudguards if you have them. As there is likely to be fewer riders there are no set groups or speeds, please form your own groups depending on who attends, and ride at a suitable speed for those present. For those not looking to enjoy the fine British winter weather Mike Smith will be arranging a Zwift group ride.

Both routes head South-West toward Hazelbury Bryan, with the shorter route going via Sturminster and the longer route via Child Okeford. The longer route carries on the Glanvilles Wootton while the shorter route cuts across to meet again near Bishops Caundle. Both routes then return to Gillingham via Stalbridge. If wanted the rides can finish at the Old Brewery cafe for cake and coffee.

Shorter Route – – 34 miles

Longer Route – – 44 miles

Meet at 10.00 am at the Wheels car park, Station Road, Gillingham. Please ensure you download your chosen route to your GPS device, and remember to bring your ride essentials.
