The Bourne Valley is a popular route, not too long (circa 54 miles, or 86 km) and not too hilly.* There is some riding on the A30, but the traffic should be relatively light on a Sunday morning. The lanes around Chilbolton and Longparish are attractive, as is the cycle-friendly B-road through the pretty villages in the Bourne Valley.
The ride will leave from Romsey Bus Station at 9:30 and finishes at Romsey World of Water on Greatbridge Road.
Please arrive 15 minutes before the start to sign on and receive a copy of the route sheet.
