What we're about

Social cycling on New Forest trails and some minor roads, we will cycle a variety of routes with the aim to improve our fitness and partake in longer organised rides throughout the year such as round the island rides, London to Brighton and the proposed Southampton Sportive.

The rides will be all year round from different locations and stopping off for coffees and pubs during and after for refreshements.
