Hampshire Gravel Rideout
Sun 21 May @ 8:30 am - 1:00 pm BSTFree
Test your legs 5 weeks ahead of the Ekoi Stone Circle, joining Matt from Zephyr CC and some Hotchillee Ride Captains for a gravel ride to the coast with a difference.
Starting at Bentley on the edge of the Hampshire downs, the route roughly follows the Shipwrights Way, winding its way to Portsmouth largely off-road and with more varied landscapes than you’d find on the Downs Link to Newhaven.
Hop on a train home at Portsmouth, or dig deep and ride back to the start, the choice is yours but it’s a challenge either way!
Start time: 8:30
Meet: Bentley Station
Route: 77km (or 154km there and back)
Min speed: 20kph (Hotchillee Faster Gravel Group / Road Speed Group 2)
You can get back to Bentley by rail from Portsmouth via Guildford/Woking, or if you’re feeling brave, ride the return leg for an epic 154km day out. It’s 4 to 5 hours in the saddle to the coast (subjected to weather conditions) so bring enough water, snacks, spare tubes, pump and good sense of humour.
The GPX file will be added to the rideouts_by_hotchillee group on the Hotchillee app so make sure to download this beforehand.
This is a self-guided Rideout. The route has been plotted by a local Hotchillee member who will join you on the ride. However, you are responsible for your own safety. Please ride safely and considerately, and adapt the route to suit your ability and your preferences.
