Saturday looks like it will be mild but breezy. This week, all three routes head to the Tarrant Valley. The White route heads back via Bryanston, Child Okeford and Manston. The Blue route heads up Bulbarrow from Blandford and back via Okeford Fitzpaine and Manston, whilst the Pink route heads further south to Charlton Marshall and Winterbournes Zelston, Kingston and Whitechurch and over Okeford Beacon on the way back.

Meet at 9.00 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. Riders can choose whether to finish at The Feed Station or Cafe Corsa, for coffee, cake and a catch up.

Pink Route: 91.0 kms, 892 m elevation – est speed 28 kmh / 17.5 mph +

All rides are no drop rides but please select a group suited to your ability! There is obviously nothing stopping a faster group doing a shorter route or a slower group doing a longer route if they wish!
