New Forest ride on Thursday 3rd September:-
You can see the 2015 route on the website at http://www.fleetcycling.org.uk/routes/routes.php by clicking the top item on the righthand menu - "New Forest 2015"
The start is near Beaulieu Road Station at 10.00 am. To find the start travel about 3 miles southeasterly from Lyndhurst on the B3056 to a car park on the right about 300 yards before the railway bridge - the coordinates are 50.855504N and 1.50671W (OS Map Ref SZ349053). It is a good car park which my RSPB group use.
From the start point it is a short ride to coffee in Beaulieu at the Old Bakehouse Tea Rooms.
On the outward route we cycle from Beaulieu to Bucklers Hard then down towards the coast turning westerly along the Solent Way to the east of the Lymington River where we head north to Boldre and onto Sway. We continue west alongside Long Slade Bottom then turn east to Brockenhurst via South Weirs.
Lunch is 24 miles from the start in Brockenhurst at the Rose and Crown.
After lunch we head north along the Rhinefield Ornamental Drive, cross the A35 onto the Bolderwood Arboretum Ornamental Drive, then turn east to Emery Down and skirt round Lyndhurst to the north to Newton and Minstead. We continue easterly to Bartley, then southeasterly to Ashurst. We avoid the A35 but cross it again in Ashurst and head southeasterly to Marchwood Enclosure. We then turn west back to Beaulieu Road Station.
Total distance just under 50 miles. Total ascent is 980 feet. The "gpx" route is available from firstname.lastname@example.org.
