Entry is now open for one of the most immersive randonnée on the South coast. Join us on the New Forest Gridiron, an autumnal adventure through the vast expanse of the New Forest, winding along undiscovered lanes and through luscious wooded canopies. This is an event that each rider can make their own, it is not a ride entirely focused on speed, the route is 100km of very accessible riding, making it suitable to almost all cycling abilities. Keeping to the randonnée spirit, riders are given a written route description and self-reliance is encouraged, GPX files are also provided for entrants and the map can be found here.
This year alongside Prendas Cyclismo, we will be running a social media photo competition involving the hashtag #gridiron100 so stay tuned for more information on this.
The event, now in it’s 25th year, takes place at the start of October every year allowing riders to bask in the wonderful shades of orange and brown leaves that adorn the trees. This year the event takes place on the 8th of October and entries are now open, riders can sign up here.
