Saturday is looking cold and sunny with a light breeze, so rug up and clip in! The White Route makes its way to the head of the Piddle Valley and across to Hazelbury Bryan and back via Sturminster and Marnhull.

The Pink and Blue routes continue down the Piddle Valley, with the Blue route turning for Cheselbourne at Piddletrenthide, whilst the Pink route turns just before Puddletown. The return is via Ansty, Bulbarrow and Sturminster.

The rides all end at the Old Brewery Cafe and Kitchen for coffee, cake, or brunch. Who will get to the cafe first this week?!

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, particularly sufficient liquid refreshement.

There is nothing to stop a group splitting into a ‘light’ and a ‘dark’ group, and a slower group can take on a longer route or a faster group ride a shorter route. All rides are no drop rides but please select a group suited to your ability!

Blue Route: 80.2 kms, 926 m elevation – est speed 24 kmh / 15 mph
