Saturday is likely to see a cold start but with temperatures rising during the morning. All three routes initially head to Templecombe, Milborne Port and Bishops Down. The White Route turns for home at Duntish, returning via Marnhull. The Blue Route and Pink Routes cross the A352 and make separate ways to Lyons Gate an on to Kings Stag on the way back to Gillingham.

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: 87.7 kms, 946 m elevation – est speed 28 kmh / 17.5 mph +

White Route: 68.1 km,730 m elevation – est speed 20 kmh / 12 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!
