Blandford Day Ride 15 Sept

Post by sue m » Mon Sep 02, 2019 8:23 pm

Hopefully the late summer good weather will last for this ride.
Both groups are probably heading north and then to the big hills to the west of Blandford.
This is not an area we have ridden often so expect the odd discussion on the correct route and maybe a few overgrown trails.... What we do know is that it is an area worth riding in - great views, big ups and a great variety of down hill trails.
Fast group are not planning on stopping for lunch just a quick drink so bring sandwiches.
Medium group do not worry we will be stopping for lunch - probably in Stourpaine however please bring plenty of snacks as a big day of riding planned. The full route (medium) is 52k 1000m climbing but a few short cuts if needed...

NB this ride is not suitable for newbie rider due to distance and amount of climbing.

Please post to let us have an idea of numbers - 2 groups planned.

Well - I plan to be there, but it looks from the welter of responses that I may be on my own!
