Full Members Social Ride – Sunday 7th April

April 7 @ 09:00 - 17:00


It might seem a little early in the year, but we saw a glimpse of the sun, so decided it was time for Ice Cream!

The leaves are on the trees and the flowers are out, so it’s time to start the summer programme

For this month’s ride, we are initially rediscovering our local roads before going to the New Forest, whilst visiting two fresh locations along the way

Starting with a meander around the local area we know well but haven’t ridden this year yet, we’ll stop for coffee at The Shack at Spetisbury. A café by day and a popular bar by night, this hidden gem in a converted cowshed offers us tea and cake and plenty of room for us all inside – or the option of the outdoor seating if it’s nice enough

Then, we’re off to Romsey via the New Forest. Our route takes in the best of open roads and spectacular scenery before we arrive at Carlo’s Ices. Don’t worry though, it’s not just ice cream on offer. There’s a large tea room serving delicious hot food, Sunday Roasts and Knickerbocker Glory’s as well as a lovely garden and covered area where we can also enjoy the flavour of the day from the ice cream counter

Suitably refreshed, we’ll head back to Dorchester, stopping off at The Horton Inn north of Wimborne to say goodbye to riders from that part of the world

Approximate riding time (excluding stops): 4.5 hours

The ride is open to:   Full Members and Pillions.
