    Hi, can anyone advise if off road tyres will be required for the wheels around Winchester ride on the 5th October please.

    Thanks

    Wayne.

    @Wayne Palmer
    Hi Wayne,
    The ride leader recommends hybrid or mountain bikes. So wider tyres with some tread would be best, but no need for suspension forks. Not suitable for road bikes with narrow tyres.
    Regards,
    David

    Where does the BRUMMEL BUMMEL start and finish, please? Distance? On road or off road?

  7. dht says:

    The details of this year’s Brummel Bummel are yet to finalised. It’s likely to be a new route; possibly the Test valley, as it was a favoured cycling area for Mark. There is a Campaign meeting on Monday where we hope to make a final decision and the website will be updated soon after.

    @dht
    Any further news?
    CTC has already announced this ride to Kings Somborne but I’d prefer to cycle the SCC version. Is it going to Kings Somborne? Where/when is the start?

    @Nigel

    Hi Nigel,
    Information about the Brummel Bummel is now available on the Southampton Cycling Campaign website.
    Regards,
    David

    hi – the ride on the 15th meeting at cowheards – how long is it? Not sure if I can keep up as i am not very fast or experienced.

  11. dht says:

    @reena
    The ride leader is very experienced and the group will all cycle together, nobody will be left behind. The ride should be less than 15 miles. If you email Lindsi Bluemel (lindsibluemel@hotmail.co.uk) then she will be able to give you more detailed information about the ride.

    When next the upcoming riding campaign is about to happen! Could you please let me know? I missed both the above mentioned dates to join in for cycle ride.

    Although I’ve bike ride around MANOR FARM COUNTRY PARK before, but riding with campaigners is a great fun.
