The New Forest Spring Sportive is one of the New Forests most popular events and has become a welcome ‘start of the season’ test for may cyclists, last year held on the 13th and 14th April.
Starting and finishing just outside the Hampshire town of Verwood, the riders took in the rolling scenery with a number of hills to challenge their legs.
Eight of the touring ladies from Cycle Seahaven, including Sarah Webb, Debbie McFly, Carol Bryant, Kate Parkinson, Annette Blackman, Heather Cheek and Linda Pilkington-Peachey took on the challenge.
‘The 7 Sisters’ team completed the 66 mile New Forest Sportive on Sunday (the eagle-eyed among you may notice there’s 8 of us but we liked the team name so much we kept it). We all met through Cycle Seahaven and have had great support from our fellow riders in the tourers group. We didn’t specify this had to be a ladies only weekend but that’s the way it worked out, so naturally there was a 2 night stay in a log cabin with sauna and fizz involved!
Well done ladies!
