Announcing a new Meetup for Try Everything Once!
What: Biking and Kayaking in the New Forest
When: Saturday, August 6, 2011 9:15 AM
Price: GBP70.00 per person
Where: Brockenhurst Railway Station
Hampshire, SO42 7XB
Starting at Bucklers Hard, famous for shipbuilding in the time of Lord Nelson, we will head straight for the kayak centre on the Beaulieu river. The kayaking is led by qualified instructors with life vests provided. Once you’ve built your confidence we will enjoy a paddle up the river passing mansions and wildlife before playing a few games with your newly developed skills.
Following our water adventures, we will eat lunch at the Master Builders pub overlooking the Beaulieu river.
Having recharged our batteries, we will be perfectly placed for a scenic walk along the estuary to collect our bikes for the afternoon. We will enjoy a 2-3 hour bike ride into the New Forest and surrounding area. We will follow single and double track as well as quiet country lanes as we explore the countryside near to Beaulieu and Brockenhurst.
Both activities are suitable for all levels. The bike ride will be split into Novice and Experienced groups, so that those returning to fitness can go at their own speed, whilst the more experienced riders cycle ahead at a faster pace.
Arrival: By train: If you are coming from London, please take the 7.35am train from London Waterloo arriving into Brockenhurst at 9.16am. We will collect you and take you to Bucklers Hard.
By car: Please meet in the car park at Buckler's Hard, Beaulieu, Hampshire, SO42 7XB at 9.35am
Finish: We can drop you at Brockenhurst railway station by no later than 6pm to return home.
