Definitely an EOM for the those who love the higher mileage rides. A total of around 250-270 miles from our start in Billingshurst, as we take a run over to our destination and lunch stop near Yeovil.
Overall the outward and return routes are different, bar a 30 odd mile bit in the middle. Cracking roads are guaranteed! A fuel stop just after lunch at around 135 miles in.
Afternoon stop – Probably just a petrol station somewhere on route back.
Finish back at start point. As this is a full days riding, please ensure you are geared for all weathers and able to ride in good order for a long day, and not forgetting the miles and time to and from your home to the start/finish.
** New and Recent members – remember please you will need to have had your Initial Assessment Ride with an Instructor to attend this and any other club riding activities
** All members please carry your membership card on this and all club activities
Please note, given the distances of this ride, we may need to limit the numbers as to how many can join the ride. It is therefore important that you please register using the BLUE “REGISTER for RIDE-OUT “ button.
Or, if you have difficulty with this button, then please register by emailing the Ride Leader directly at email@example.com.
Should you register and then find yourself unable to attend, please email the ride leader asap – firstname.lastname@example.org.
One of the riders will need to Back-Mark so any volunteer for this please advise the ride leader when you register for the ride. If you have an orange Hi-Viz please bring it with you, or one may be provided on the day, or dependant on the size of the group an alternative marker may be agreed.
Please make sure you are fully conversant with the rules of the “BACK-MARKER SYSTEM“. Following these correctly is vital to the smooth running of the day and reduces the risk of losing someone or everyone. Details of the BM system are on our Southernriders.org website. If you’re unsure on the day, ask one of the attending Ride Leader. They will be more than happy to clarify any issues you have.
If you wear hi-viz, please ensure it is not Orange as this is reserved for the ‘back-marker’ during our ride-outs. We appreciate you may normally wear an orange hi-viz whilst riding. However, some find it confusing when in the middle of the group to see two or more riders with the orange hi-viz. So, in an effort to avoid confusion and markers leaving their post prematurely ONLY the back-marker is to wear orange hi-viz. Thank you
