Semi-organised, part camp and all adventure. This is not about a high avg speed with little time to appreciate the joy of being with friends and taking in scenery. It doesn't mean it won't be difficult either, multi-day distance cycling can make you feel aches/pains you didn't know existed.
Episode 2 in the series - the next big step in miles and possible wild camp.
Following a similar format to Episode 1 we will leave early Saturday morning and return Sunday evening. Averaging over 100 miles per day out to the Dorset Coast for some fresh air, fresh fish and plenty of beer. Carrying what you need for 2 days cycling and camping.
The route will explore the various forests, points of interest and beauty spots in Hampshire and Dorset.. Being a Bear Adventure the road surface will be mixed so leave that TT at home.
As with all of this if you want to do part, some or all of the ride it can be accommodated.
I intend for this to be a little more rugged but I'll research some cheap accommodation options including camp sites.
Miles - 200 (min distance)
disclaimer - You'll be expected to have some level of fitness, cycling ability and self-reliance.I'm doing this for the love of cycling and fun. I will design an interesting route suitable for all bikes (hybrid/road/adventure), identify places to stay/camp at our destination, schedule in several food/beer stops, shepherd on the days we cycle and make sure everyone has fun. It will be down to you to pay for a hotel/hostel/campsite if you want it and let your family/loved ones know your whereabouts
ps - there's a wealth of information online which should cover most questions. I suggest a visit to Alpkit or Decathlon for cheap kit if you need anything. You don't need to spend much, a lightly packed backpack could also do the trick - you'll only need one cycling kit. My tip is to pack, unpack, half it and then repack that
