All members, non members and all ability groups are welcome to attend Bournemouth Jubilee club rides. We offer group rides for all abilities and speeds. We would encourage regular riders to become a member of CTC/BC or an affiliated club to obtain insurance cover. The easiest way to join BJW (who are CTC / BC affiliated) is via British Cycling’s portal (Details can be found here). Equally if you are already a member of another club, you can still join BJW as a 2nd claim member (but that is not essential).
Saturday Chain Gang
Saturday 9am, Hurn Post Office
Thru ‘n Off, a good paced training ride with no stops. Approx 40 miles.
Route: From Hurn Post Office head north along Matchams Lane out to Alderholt & Fordingbridge, left to Damerham, through village, over to Cranborne, (careful through village) on to the Horton Inn, left then right to Chalbury Common, Gaunts and Furzehill, up to Colehill, down to Canford bottom then Ham Lane & Parley Cross and back to Hurn!
Every Saturday from Hurn Post Office, shop is open for post ride cold cans, mars bars etc. free car park across the road (Ramsdown Enclosure)
Depending on numbers we will run 1,2 or even 3 groups. If you cannot ride with the fast group do not worry, form a slower group and leave a few minutes earlier. Its not about riding fast its about riding hard. You cannot race hard if you do not train hard!
Note: This is intended to be a good paced training ride, so there will be no mass stop for punctures etc, be prepared.
Helmets compulsory. Mudguards please from 1st Nov-1st Feb.
Sunday Club Ride
Sunday mornings are led by Mark Westcott, we meet in Wimborne Square and leave at 8.30am. The ride route will be published during the week on our FaceBook page and Strava group, the ride is usually ~60-80 miles with a café stop around halfway. The average speed depends on the group and route taken but is typically ~16-18mph, we will re-group at the top of climbs and try to keep the group together where possible.
New Sunday Club Ride
From Sunday 14th May Jonathan Charman has kindly volunteered to start a new Sunday ride. Plan is for the group to meet at Wimborne Square at 0845hrs. The ride should take around two hours and will be at a ‘sociable’ pace and will head out towards Witchampton, Crichel and the Gussages. The ride will end back at the Square for coffee and cake for those that would like.
It would be much appreciated if members could let others know that are not on FB and for a few of those that used to ride on Martin and Phil’s old Sunday ride to turn up and support. This is very much aimed at the time constrained, those that would like a casual ride and for beginner riders.
Thursday Club Run
On Thursday evenings we meet at Canford Bottom Roundabout
– Colehill turning. Ride starts at 1830 so please arrive early. 25 miles on mainly quiet country roads with a bit of chaingang for a mile or two. Will run more groups if numbers and pace dictates. NO-ONE will be dropped. Kev Ridge organises the Thursday evening ride.
Keep an eye on the BJW Facebook
page, Strava Group
or this webpage, where any updates or changes to all club runs will be announced.
