On an overcast, muggy day in April all the New Forest clubs came together at Hargroves Cycles to ride together in the forest inter-club ride.
The morning started at the Hargroves shop, with an excellent selection of coffee, cake, gels and goodies to raise the riders spirits before embarking on the ride. 56 riders in total attended, which is a brilliant example of the buzzing cycling community in and around the New Forest.
After 25 miles out on the forest roads, riders came together at the Leckford estate for coffee and snacks where they were joined by 3C supporters Ian and Sue! An extra 30 miles completed the loop back round to the shop where more coffee and cake was waiting.
Unfortunately the weather chose not to hold up for the last 15 miles, allowing riders to show they can abide by rules #5 and #9, still with smiles on their faces!
Thanks from all 3C riders to Hargroves CC for the excellent organisation and refreshments, a brilliant time was had by all.
What a good start to the season!
