FRIENDLY, FUN, FREE – RIDES FOR ALL
Southampton Cycling Campaign rides explore local countryside using, quiet roads, rural lanes, bridleways, cycle paths and restricted byways. Suitable for Touring, hybrid and mountain bikes. There is always a stop for coffee and cake approximately half way.
Unavoidable changes (eg adverse weather conditions) will be posted on this website. More info: firstname.lastname@example.org
Rides Programme 2020
With regret and with immediate effect we are suspending the Cycle Campaign rides programme, including the advertised ride in Dorset, along the Piddle Valley, on 29 March. This is in response to national restrictions on social interaction which are trying to restrain the coronavirus epidemic, and bearing in mind the shut down of CTC and British cycling rides. So, our rides programme is in abeyance until further notice and no plans will be made for Bike Week rides in June. We hope that some of these rides, especially the Dorset one, can be rearranged at a future date. As and when we can restart our programme, we will let people know – please ensure that all interested parties are signed up to the cycling campaign autistici circulation list

All welcome on our sociable, easy-paced rides in the Hampshire countryside — they are fun, friendly and FREE. Sunday rides usually assemble at 9.45 and set off promptly at 10am, and finish at the start location around 1:30pm (if a half day). All are half day and circular rides, usually 16-18 miles, unless indicated otherwise. Half day rides always have a coffee stop and all day rides a lunch stop.
All rides include a mix of quiet roads, country lanes, off-road cycle paths and bridleways, so suitable for hybrid/mountain bikes. Children over 10 yrs welcome with an adult.
