OK, inspired by the Quantocks locals and their fabulous ride last weekend, I want to see who'd be interested in a ride around the Isle of Purbeck on Saturday May 2nd. I know (from google 30secs ago!) that this is a bank holiday weekend, but it's the only date that all of my lot can do.
Our usual ride round there is about 30 miles with 800m of climbing, but we do that in a whole day so there is plenty of chilling. There is a pub halfway round which possesses the best of all things; views, cider and sausage pie :). I have spoken to the faster members of our group so there is an option for all the racing weasels to avoid the pub and get some more miles in.
For those who don't live locally (which includes me, I'm in Salisbury...), the riding in the Purbecks is more scenic than technical when compared to say the Quantocks, but there is quality singletrack to be had.
Any locals who want to help out with guiding or ideas please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org. Anyone wanting to have a say on routes, distances etc. also feel free to email me.
