Good Friday New Forest Ride.... 15th April
« on: February 25, 2022, 07:48:23 AM »
The 12th Good Friday New forest ride.

Meeting at Rownhams service M27 westbound.

09;00 meet to leave 09;30

Run will include Sammy Millers for a cuppa and a café for lunch etc. I will try and make it a bit different to last years but it will be similar.

Weather permitting as usual.

Hey,
Great that there is a RD meeting coming up.
In that week I have a vacation. Look nice to ride to UK for also the meeting.
I am new on riding a meeting in UK.

Any recommended for nearby camping or accommodation?

There are a lot of campsites and accommodation in the New Forest itself. However, I don't know prices or how full up they get in the Easter holidays.

The meeting place is Rownhams services on the M27 Westbound and that has a cheap hotel on site. If you are coming the day before let us know and we may be able to arrange a night out. If you are camping in the new Forest again let us know and we may be able to incorporate the ride to collect you.

And enough campings to select from!
Thinking to drive it in 2-3 days to there.

And.. I have to ride carefully not hitting a crossing horse on the road nearby a camping!

Yes, high mortality rate for the horses, cows etc - they are allowed to roam wherever they like.  :o Also beware of cattle grids, particularly when wet.  :o :o :o
