Sunny intervals and light winds for the club rides this Saturday, but temps of 8-13˚ so you may still want that extra layer. This week all routes head in an easterly direction. The Pink and Blue start off towards Motcombe, to Semley, then via Tisbury to Fovant. Here they part ways with the Pink group tackling the tough Fovant downs climb and on to Wilton. Meanwhile the Blue group head to Dinton and tackle their own climb over the top to Wylye. Both routes then return via the Wylye valley, with a coffee stop at the ever popular Ginger Pig in Boyton. From here its on to Sutton Veny, Maiden Bradley and back home via Zeals.

The White group head out via Bay to East Knoyle, on through Fonthill Bishop and around to Compton Chamberlayne. Then back to Tisbury for a coffee stop at Beatons Tearooms. Then home via Semley and Motcombe.

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.
