    @Geoff
    Forest ride includes forest tracks, which are gravel and RVCP NCN tracks are also gravel. This could affect both the Wed ride to RVCP and the Thursday ride to Hamble. There is a road alternative for the forest tracks and short distances through RVCP could be walked.

    The easiest description would be: “all our rides are mixed terrain (mountain bikes not required)”.
