Novice / Family Bike Ride from Bank - 8m - Grade Green

A leisurely bike ride around  Bank with drinks / food if wanted afterwards at the Swan ( on road from Bank back towards Lyndhurst - they have a good size garden for the kids to run about in!)

Suitable for novice riders and kids from 7 years and up as long as competent riders who can do approx 8 miles in 2 hours ish

Meet at 2pm to leave at 2.15pm

If I do have to cancel due to weather / illness etc I will note this on website - please therefore do check website before you set off for the ride. I use the Met Office weather forecast FYI – most accurate by far vs BBC / iphone app etc

In case of illness / last minute problems please let me know on[masked] if you've not had chance to change your RSVP online. No shows will be recorded and persistent no shows may be bumped onto the waiting list for over-subscribed events in future.

Mountain bike ( or hybrid) needed - Please bring helmet, spare inner / puncture repair kits etc. Mostly bike tracks / some minor roads.

Fees : To cover the costs of running the group ( meet up fees are £90 / year ) I do ask for a £5 / yr annual contribution once you've done 3 or more events - payment link is on new forest adventurers home page down LHS – thanks. ( please check you are up to date with your fees as you may be bumped onto the waiting list if not )

Please can everyone ensure they have read our FAQs ( see “pages” tab at top of website) before coming on a ride thanks very much

    Sorry think the weather has changed my mind. Was taking grandson and really want his early experience of cycling to be a good one rather than battling with wind and weather.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
