Purbecks recce with photos
We did a recce yesterday for the Purbecks ride next weekend. The weather was gorgeous and it was a great day/bike ride. We did bits of the short and long route, so my pics are of both. 1st attempt at fotopic.
For oldfart 😉
Want to do click pics for more pics but I can’t get it to work. Can someone let me know please?

Anna (how informal !) thanks for the preview ! getting some shrapnel together to buy your ice cream ! As i am coming from Wurzel central going to be t’other side of the ferry .Seems to make sense to me .(Studland side ) What time do you reckon i need to be there ? (All weather permitting of course !!!!!!!!!!) I know lightweight .Rich going to post a route this week ?Posted 8 years ago
Should have finalised the routes tonight, but started drinking beer… Rocketdog, how far do you think you want to go?
Dorset Knob, That’s the NW bridleway descent from the top of nine barrow down.
Old Fart, do I not have your email address? Will put up final details on wednesday night. I’m hoping that we’ll set off from the car park at 10, but it can be 30 minutes for the ferry depending on our timing. Where are you likely to park, just the other side of the ferry tollgate?Posted 8 years agooldfartSubscriber
Are we still having eats at the pub? Should they not have advanced warning or it will take forever? Rich i’ll just park somewhere along the road and scoot down to the ferry terminal .Probably just hang out at the cafe with a coffee and look out for a group of excited kids !!! (CG in particular by the seems of things !!!try and stay calm girl or else you won’t sleep Friday night !!!!)Posted 8 years ago
Plan is just a snack at the pub, as all they serve is pasties and pies not full on meals. Spoke to them on Sunday, will call them tomorrow to give them a rough idea of numbers. Knottie, I don’t think we need more hype, reckon we have at least 30 at the moment. Will do a roll call though just to see how it’s going. Oldfart, you mean Sandbanks side yes?
Right, off to finish the routes and maps……Posted 8 years agoandywhitMember

oldfart – thanks for your concern, haven’t been called an excited kid for a long time 😯
As regards sleeping Friday night, well, this kid’s gonna be clubbing
til I fall over in my killer heels 🙄
Looking forward to meeting everyone … once I have recovered from the transatlantic crossing.Posted 8 years agotheotherjonvSubscriber
just back – my first ride there – and it was fantastic!
Real ‘big sky’ riding; big climbs and descents with great views*. Top day out with BOB’s skivers ride. 33 miles and lots of climbs (not ‘just 4’ as per what i was promised)
* Apart from the bit past the naturist beach.Posted 8 years ago
