Easter Sunday - 24th April 2011
Mainland run through the New Forest and Dorset. 12 bikes caught the 9.15am
Yarmouth Ferry for this 140 mile round trip. It was a cold start on the boat
but gradually warmed up as the morning progressed. The sun was out for most
of the day, and for anyone who has not used the 'Ornamental Drive' in the
Forest before the beauty is breathtaking especially at this time of the year.
We progressed on to our coffee stop at the Wilton Centre, which, for the first
time ever was closed so we pressed on eventually finding a Pub for lunch where
we were able to sit outside to eat as the sun was so warm. After lunch we
continued through some very unspoilt areas of Dorset towards Fordingbridge
and the 'Sandy Balls Holiday Centre' where we stopped for drinks. We retraced
our route including the 'Ornamental Drive' which, like so many roads, looks
so different when travelling in the opposite direction arrive back at Lymington
for the 5.15pm Ferry. All in all, a very pleasant way to spend a few hours
with a great bunch of friends. Thanks to Tail End Charlie Michel and Jan.
