Rides List


HATCHET MOOR near Beaulieu

We will be starting from Hatchet Moor car park which is to the south of Hatchet Pond. This location can take us around the perimeter track of
the old airfield, perhaps taking in Diltons Farm in mud and other unspeakable mixtures of slurry. Or there is a loop
via Beaulieu around the fringes of Langley, Blackfield, Holbury and Hardley before turning southwards and heading
back towards Hatchet Moor or if neither of those routes takes your fancy, there's always Hawkhill, Ladycross,
Woodfidley and Denny Lodge on the north side of the B3055 road (the road between Beaulieu and Brockenhurst).

Starting Time: 10:00 Sunday 10 December 2023
Post Ride Venue: Turfcutters Arms


BOXING DAY RIDE - Come and get some fresh air and exercise after all the food and booze on Christmas day!!!
A lovely central starting point that used to be a regular venue in the early days of the Club so it will be nice to re-acquaint ourselves with it.
Expect the usual mix of heathland and forest inclosures. Some mud is guaranteed to be lurking in the shadier parts, especially after wet weather
Starting Time: 10:00 Tuesday 26 December 2023
Post Ride Venue: a choice of a few pubs in Lyndhurst.

FARLEY MOUNT (Hawthorns Car Park)

NEW CAR PARK This car park is on the road to the Monument 300m from the junction with the road coming from Hursley and Standon on the A3090. It is bigger and less popular than the car park we have been using.

There are some terrific tracks in this area. Parnholt Wood has a great downhill run which leads to Kings Somborne. From here it is possible to take the Test Way up to Stockbridge and circle out around Crawley almost reaching Wherwell not far from Andover before heading back via Sparsholt and West Wood. For anyone looking for a shorter trip, you could do worse than ride around the many trails in West Wood itself perhaps linking up with some sections of the Clarendon Way.

MOORS VALLEY (from Three Legged Cross)

This is an opportunity to sample yet more delights of the Moors Valley and Ringwood Forest area by starting from the Woolsbridge Industrial Estate. You will find the start location by taking the road to Three Legged Cross, and you will find the Woolsbridge Industrial Estate in close proximity to the entrance to the Moors Valley Country Park.

We will use the Woolsbridge Industrial Estate general kerbside parking and the turning into the industrial estate off the Ringwood Road is at SU 096 051.

There is a pub called the Three Legged Cross Inn on the main road at the turning point into the industrial estate but please do not use the pub car park and abandon your car for 3 hours, it will be frowned upon by the pub management.
