Sunday 14th July - Finding the Needles in the Forest

Moderate pace to start with then slower after Winchester and in the New Forest.

82 mls, No coffee or fuel stops, 2hrs 10min in the saddle

Meet me at Newlands Corner 9.45am briefing with a full tank of fuel!

Kick stands up at 10am

We will take the A3 and A31 to Winchester where we will avoid the motorways by traveling on A and B roads to Romsey.

We will then head for the New Forest avoiding Lynhurst (always a bottleneck for traffic) arriving at the Needles Eye Café for a spot of lunch around midday. (Free parking for Motorcycles).

We will head back and have an early fuel stop, for those who need it, and then back through the New Forest through Lymington and via Beaulieu and join the M27 where we can go our separate ways for a quicker ride home.
